California Wild Fires cause concern for future landslides

Southern California has been tormented by six recent wild fires that have burned hundreds of thousands of acres of naturally occuring growth and plant cover in hills and mountains above major population centers and residential neighborhoods.  Plant cover and natural landscaping provides soil stability, especially on cliffs, hillsides and sloping terrain.  When large areas experience devastating wild fires, the result can often be subsequent landslides, debris flows and earth movement after continuous or heavy rainfall. 

What Is Inverse Condemnation?

Property laws can be very complicated considering the government's right, and potentially skewed interpretation, of eminent domain. One aspect of eminent domain law is condemnation and inverse condemnation. Condemnation is the official method the government uses in order to change title of a property from the owner to itself. In essence, the government is filing suit for your property, and offering you compensation for it, though it is often less than it should be.
