WHAT IS “EXPROPRIATION”?

Expropriation describes the process where a landowner is forced to lose ownership of their property to an “expropriating authority,” for government use or where the government authorizes it. A landowner must be compensated for any property that is taken, but disputes can arise about the value of that property and the amount of compensation that the owner is entitled to.

WHO IS AFFECTED BY EXPROPRIATION?

The term landowner, or “owner,” includes registered property owners, tenants, trustees, guardians, executors, mortgagees, or any person otherwise entitled to an interest in the property. Check with us to see if you might be entitled to compensation from an expropriation.
