Nobody in Texas likes the idea of giving up hard-won land, but that is exactly what could happen when the government attempts to claim eminent domain. This limited power could allow the federal government to take over personal property rights from land- and homeowners. The good news is that the law was originally written to limit the power of rather than augment it.
When the government decides that it wants to use your Texas property, it will invoke eminent domain to acquire it from you in exchange for what the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution calls “just compensation.” However, you might not agree with what the government says your just compensation should be. By finding out what the fair market value of your home is, you can make the case for a fairer price for your property.
