Eminent Domain: The Quick Taking Statute

Florida Statutes Chapter 74 also known as the quick taking statute, is the most common statute used by the government to exercise the power of eminent domain. Why is it called the quick taking statute?  Because the government can take land by depositing a good faith estimate of the value of the property taken and get a quick court order which transfers the title of the property from the individual to the government. This statute is frequently used because it is a quick taking of your property, and allows the condemning authority to begin their building project promptly.
