Know the Law
In North Carolina, few laws to protect property owners from frivolous land condemnation or seizure under eminent domain. While the state constitution does not specifically address eminent domain, Article I §19 states: “No person shall be taken, imprisoned, or disseized of his freehold, liberties, or privileges, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner deprived of his life, liberty, or property, but by the law of the land. No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws; nor shall any person be subjected to discrimination by the State because of race, color, religion, or national origin.”
The appellate courts have interpreted the above article to similarly limit the government’s right to take property without just compensation.
