Eminent Domain

I had a Real Estate Agent in Solano County today, ask me if title insurance would protect her from eminent domain?  I have never encountered this question in my many years of experience.  So being intrigued, I was just wondering, has anyone lost property in this manner or know someone who has?  It is a rare occurrence. 


There are a lot of websites that give definitions, and discuss the nature of Eminent Domain,  but it seems that there are no recorded cases where a homeowner fought the City, County, or State Government for the rights to their home, land or property.  If you have any information regarding this topic, we’d love to hear from you.  |

From a title perspective, I don’t think the title policy would cover this type of scenario, but Ill have to leave the answer to this question up to my title department. 🙂
