What is Condemnation in Real Estate?
Sometimes the word “condemnation” is used in connection with the destruction or demolition of an unsafe, dangerous or substandard building. The word “condemnation” in the context of the power of eminent domain refers only to the type of procedure followed to acquire private property against an owner’s will and does not imply anything negative about the private property sought to be acquired by the government. In the eminent domain context, the two words are interchangeable.
