Land Condemnation

Land Condemnation

Jeff Peraldo represented 108 homeowners whose property values were depressed by a larger neighboring highway project. The NCDOT had refused any compensation and claimed the project did not intrude upon or affect the clients’ properties. The North Carolina Supreme Court sided with the homeowners and the cases eventually settled for an amount well over $1,000,000.00.

James Faucher and Bob Benson represented a family that build and owned a restaurant on High Point Road in Greensboro. As a result of the NCDOT expansion of High Point Road, part of the family’s land, including nearly all of the parking for the restaurant, was taken. Faucher and Benson represented the family in the condemnation action, which ultimately was resolved by the DOT paying nearly three times its initially offered purchase price for the land.

James Faucher represented a property owner who had failed to timely respond to a condemnation filing. Due to this failure to respond, other attorneys had failed to obtain any additional compensation for the property owner. Mr. Faucher was able to get an answer filed, and successfully negotiated an additional payment of more than 15% of the amount previously offered by DOT.

Jeff Peraldo represented a homeowner whose house was impacted by a road widening project. The NCDOT offered low compensation and litigation was required. On the strength of expert appraisal testimony the case settled for nearly thirty percent over the DOT offer. This is typical of several single family cases the firm has handled and is currently handling.

Jeff Peraldo and James Faucher are currently representing property owners who are being affected by the construction of the Greensboro Urban Loop by NCDOT, the widening of Horse Pen Creek Road by the City of Greensboro, and numerous other projects.
