Eminent Domain: The States Superior Right of Ownership
Eminent Domain. Did you know that the land you own is subject to the superior right of ownership by the government? We like to think that the land we own is ours and ours only but that is not the case. The state owns the land first, and we own our land second. This means that should the state decide that they want our property they can take it… but, of course, the state must pay full compensation for taking our property.
