What Information/Documents Does the Government Need if They are Condemning My Property

Hello, my name is Raymer Maguire, I’m a 30 year eminent domain practitioner, and I limit my practice to representing property owners and businesses. The question at hand is, what information and documents do I need to give the government if they are considering condemning my property? This is a fact specific question. Because there are certain circumstances that you don’t want to give the government any information if you want to create leverage over them for getting some changes to access or drainage problems that their project is going to cause. On the other hand, if it’s in your interest to get the most money from the government, you probably wanna give them almost all documents that would help boost their appraiser’s opinion of the value of your property.
