The right of a government entity to seize private property for the purpose of constructing a public facility. Federal, state, and local governments can seize people's homes under eminent domain laws as long as the homeowner is compensated at fair market value. If the owner does not agree to the government’s terms, or does not wish to part with his property, the government can still seize the property by forcing him to sell (known as condemnation). Some public projects that may necessitate such condemnation include highways, toll roads, hospitals, schools, parks, or government office buildings.
