What Property Can be Taken by the Government?

This is essentially what are the forms of property. Because any form of property can be subjected to a government taking. Obviously, complete ownership, a strip off of a plot of land, an easement through land, a slope easement so that there can be support of the road and the road that they’ve built won’t fall in from erosion. They can buy retention rights to put water into a reserve. They can have mining rights. Now the most common way, the common form of land that’s taken, is a strip of land to widen a two-lane road to a four-lane road. Almost any form of land property can be taken.
