Understanding The Basics Of California Eminent Domain Law

In short, eminent domain law gives the state the legal right to seize a person's or business' private or real property for public use. Although the property owner will be financially compensated, the government does not require the property owner's permission to seize their property. The formal act of transferring title of the property from the private owner to the government is referred to as condemnation.
