More eminent domain woes
Hello. I posted about a partial taking on my property last year. The post was a while ago so I wanted to start a new one instead of resurrecting an old thread.
I have recently found out more details about what my property is going to look like after they do the construction. The slope of my drive is going from a 5% grade to a 12% grade. My yard is going to be at a 4:1 ratio. I doubt I will be able to use the riding mower on it. The state said they don't take the difficulty of mowing the new slope into consideration until it is 3:1.
Given all of that information, I have two questions
1. Will the state have to pay me for damages for making my yard unusable and my driveway difficult to maneuver in the snow & ice?
2. Is there anyway to force the state to take the whole property instead of just the partial taking they are working on now? Perhaps a hardship case could be made?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
