When Can New Jersey Use Eminent Domain To Take A Property?

The taking powers of state officials are governed by the New Jersey Eminent Domain Act (NJEDA). As in other states, the government can only take property for specific purposes – often those that have a public benefit – and must provide just compensation.

For example, eminent domain powers are sometimes used when constructing public works, like a new interstate or a public rail line. In some cases, the Local Redevelopment and Housing Law also allows for land to be taken for housing projects, although reforms over the years have made this less common since condemnation – the taking process itself – is not always required.

The main requirement is that the government demonstrates a valid reason to take the land and shows why doing so would be beneficial for the public at large. This is to prevent government officials from using eminent domains for personal benefit. There must be a great enough benefit to the other citizens in New Jersey to justify taking legal property from a landowner against their will.
