New North Carolina Supreme Court Ruling on Map Act Benefits Property Owners

Henson Fuerst North Carolina Land Condemnation attorneys represent property owners throughout the state who have been restricted from freely using their property due to the Map Act.

Since 1989, the Map Act has given North Carolina Department of Transportation (NC DOT) the right to impose restrictions on the use of other people’s property that falls within the boundaries of future highway bypass projects.

There are many lawsuits pending in the state of North Carolina where people’s land, home and/or property have been taken from them by the state, and they have not been compensated properly. This past week, a new Supreme Court Ruling made it clear that now, property owners must be compensated fairly for any property taken by NC DOT.

The State Supreme Court has ordered that NC DOT must compensate property owners for the financial losses they incur as a result of being unable to improve, expand, develop or even sell the land they rightfully own.

Land Commendation Attorneys David Henson and Anne Duvoisin represent Map Act plaintiffs across the state of North Carolina, including in Pender, New Hanover, Pitt and Cleveland counties.

Attorney Fisher was recently featured in an article in the Shelby Star about the impact of this State Supreme Court ruling on local property owners.
