Appraising property in the eminent domain process

A government entity acquires land for a public project through its power of eminent domain. Prior to initiating formal condemnation proceedings by filing a complaint in eminent domain in Superior Court, the government must fulfill several legal requirements, including appraising the property it seeks to acquire and making a purchase offer to the owner according to specific sections of the California Government Code.
