Understanding arbitration

Everyone in Greensburg would like to hope that the process of buying a new home or property would always be completed smoothly. Sadly, that is not always the case. Any number of issues can arise during the process of completing a real estate transaction, many of which will put buyers and sellers (along with their respective realtors) at odds. When such disputes do arise, many often question which is the best way to solve them?

What is eminent domain?

The common school of thought amongst many in Greensburg is that a person’s home is his or her castle, with his or her property its surrounding kingdom. As such, no one could just come in (much less state or local government officials) and just take that away from you, right? In most cases, you would be correct in that assumption. However, the principle of eminent domain allows the government to expropriate private property for public use. Could your property be taken through this authority? Only by understanding how Pennsylvania regulates this right can that question be answered.
