How is Just Compensation Determined?

October 7, 2021

Property owners have the right to a jury trial in Illinois to determine the amount of just compensation. Just compensation means the fair cash market value of the property at its highest and best use on the date of value. It includes the value for the property taken and any diminution in value to the owner’s remaining property referred to as “damages to the remainder.”
