Texas is a growing state and our landowners are often approached by companies or their agents seeking to condemn or take your property. You have rights in that process and the video above reviews those rights.
Does that company have the right to take your property? It might under the power of eminent domain if the property is being acquired for a “public use”.
If your property can be taken under eminent domain, the company must still provide you with a copy of the Landowner’s Bill of Rights under the Texas Property Code, Chapter 21. The Landowner’s Bill of Rights describes that process to be followed in condemnation proceedings.
