NCDOT Taking Land From 200+ Cleveland County Residents - Former NCDOT Attorneys Respond With No Cost Seminar

Share Article

The NCDOT’s plans to build a bypass around Shelby, NC, will take land from hundreds of Cleveland County residents. Two former NCDOT attorneys, who now work for the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm, are responding by hosting a free seminar on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 to educate property owners about their options.

“Homeowners receive a very official offer and think that is the ‘law’ for what they are able to receive,” Campbell said. “If an offer has been made, there may be a more complete and satisfactory offer to be gained through reappraisal and negotiations.”

For years, property owners along the proposed U.S. 74 Shelby Bypass route have been waiting for the NCDOT to finally take action. According to the Shelby Star published on February 23, 2015, the property owners haven’t been able to develop their land and several have filed lawsuits (NC Appeals Court says DOT must pay landowners, Shelby Star, February 23, 2015).

Now the time has finally come. According to former NCDOT attorney Jason Campbell, property owners will receive offers from the NCDOT any day now, but these offers are not necessarily everything they’re entitled to.

“Homeowners receive a very official offer and think that is the ‘law’ for what they are able to receive,” Campbell said. “If an offer has been made, there may be a more complete and satisfactory offer to be gained through reappraisal and negotiations.”

To help property owners find that “more complete and satisfactory offer,” Campbell and his colleague, Stan Abrams, are giving a free seminar to educate home, business, and land owners about their rights and options. The seminar will be held at 7pm on Thursday, April 9th at the Days Inn in Shelby on West Dixon Boulevard.

Advice from Former NCDOT Attorneys
Campbell and Abrams, are both former attorneys for the North Carolina Department of Transportation. According to Abrams, they left the NCDOT and joined the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm to help “even the playing field” for property owners, which they hope to help accomplish at their seminar.

“We’ll be giving away some really valuable information – such as how property owners may be able collect the government’s first offer, without technically accepting it, so they at least have some money to use while negotiating for more,” Abrams said. “We’ll also be available to answer questions about individual properties and situations afterwards.”

Other topics for the seminar include:

  •     How are NCDOT offers calculated?
  •     What is “fair market value”?
  •     What if my space is leased? Will there be any relocation benefits?
  •     How can I know if the offer for my property is fair?
