  • What are Trade Fixtures in Condemnation?

              Trade fixtures are general those personal property improvements installed for business purposes.  In a recent Court of Appeals decision, Matter of City of New York (Kaiser Woodcraft Corp.), 11 NY3d 353 (2008), it was noted that “New York takes a broad view in evaluating what improvements are to be regarded as (trade) fixtures.”  Citing, Rose v State of New York, 24 NY2d 80, 86 (1969).           The classic definition of a compensable trade fixture is an item added to the premises with the intention that it becomes a permanent… read more

  • How’s the Wall Going?

    Texas           In Texas, the U.S.-Mexico Border is a river, and 95 percent of the adjoining land is privately owned.  Anywhere Trump builds his wall in Texas, he’ll have to wrench land from farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs and deeply rooted Hispanic families.  Just downriver from the target land, for example, lies a stretch that includes an RV park frequented by Winter Texans, a bar and grill that offers river cruises, and the historic La Lomita chapel.  No construction contract has been awarded there yet, but the feds expect to do so… read more

  • REDEVELOPMENT: HOW DOES AN OWNER STAND ITS GROUND?

              This article is written from the New York State perspective.  There are factors in play in New York which are very different from the remainder of the country.  First, Kelo v City of New London, 545 US 469 (2005) hardly presented a shock to the New York condemnation bar.  New York’s law was always, and still is, decidedly slanted towards condemnors.  Secondly, redevelopment never stopped.  There was never any recession impact on redevelopment. Authorizing and Challenging the Condemnation Article 2 of New York’s Eminent Domain Procedure Law sets forth… read more

  • How to Value Contaminated Land

              This Appellate Division, in Matter of City of New York v Mobil Oil Corp., 12 AD3d 77 (2d Dept, 2004), a case of first impression in New York, held that the most efficacious way to acknowledge that land may be contaminated in an eminent domain proceeding is to value the condemned property as if remediated, but to hold in escrow any condemnation award pending the outcome of the Navigation Law proceeding.[1]  This court stated, [B]y excluding evidence of remediation costs in an eminent domain proceeding, the potential that the… read more
