An eminent domain action may reserve certain rights in the property to the current owner. The government may petition to take only part of, or a partial interest in, the property. This requires the appraiser to value the "larger parcel" -- the currently undivided, contiguous property -- and the "remainder" of the property, or rights to use the property, that will be held by the owner after condemnation and factor that into the overall value of the taken property. For an added wrinkle, it will often be necessary for the appraiser to determine his or her opinion of value on the "remainder" before the taking and after the development or use prompting the taking, because they are likely to be very different.

It's your constitutional right that if the government wants to condemn your property, or take it from you by means of "eminent domain," it must give you "just" compensation.

We also perform work for government clients needing to offer and provide "just" compensation in eminent domain cases.

Condemnation​ / eminent domain Appraisal

The government is likely to have its own idea of "just" compensation, maybe based on a professional appraisal. But an appraisal on your behalf, performed under the standards of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), is powerful -- and useful -- evidence of what you're entitled to, and protects your rights.

We recognize that the needs of our clients are unique and varied. If you do not find what you are looking for on our website, please email or telephone us about your specific appraisal need. We’d be delighted to discuss it with you.

If the above makes condemnation appraisals sound simple, that's not the case. There are many legal and procedural issues involved in an accurate condemnation appraisal in South Carolina.

We appreciate your interest in our appraisal company and look forward to working with you.
