Relocation Rights

Relocation Services and Payments are in Addition to Compensation for Your Property

In addition to receiving compensation for the property taken, the property owner may also be entitled to relocation benefits and monies. Relocation rights are often governed under federal law and are determined independently of the property's value. In some cases, the expense of moving may be greater than the value of the property condemned, especially with industrial sites. Fixtures and large machinery may require specialized movers for moving and reconnecting, and it is important that the government reimburse for all such costs. In addition, there are situations where business losses are compensable under relocation laws.

Most importantly, a relocation of a business must be timely and designed to minimize business interruption.

For the homeowner, relocation considerations may include the need to find a replacement dwelling within the same area as the condemned home. The government is obligated to assist in finding a suitable replacement site and, yet, it may fail to do so.

At Denlow & Henry, we protect the property and business owners and use the relocation law to safeguard their rights.
