What Is Eminent Domain Law In Idaho?

Eminent domain law in Idaho gives the government and some private groups the right to take private land and use it for public purposes. This might include the building of pipelines, roads, government buildings, parks, and more.

Unfortunately, some condemnors abuse this power and get away with actions outside the bounds of law. But an eminent domain attorney in Idaho can hold condemnors accountable and make sure they treat landowners as fairly as possible in any eminent domain case.

Frequently Asked Questions

Idaho’s eminent domain law states that every landowner should receive just compensation—or a monetary exchange—when their land is condemned. However, many government and private groups end up offering far less than the land is worth, short-changing the unassuming landowner. Don’t let that happen to you! Hire the right lawyer to fight for the true value of your land.

Reestablishing a business or home involves many expenses, from moving vans and packing supplies to taking time off work. Landowners are entitled to relocation benefits to pay for these expenses, but many condemnors greatly underestimate the true cost of relocation. Luckily, a lawyer can fight for greater compensation in this area as well.

Several factors limit eminent domain in Idaho. According to state law, condemnors must:
– Give notice to landowners.
– Provide a copy of the land appraisal.
– Notify landowners of court dates.
– Negotiate compensation.

Eminent domain cases in Idaho may stretch out anywhere from a couple of months to a full year or more. The timeline depends on whether the case requires litigation, the nature of the case, etc.
