Protecting Ohio Landowner Rights
Once land is developed, it’s gone forever. Ohio lags behind most states in protections for landowners. For example, Ohio is the only state that does not provide a protection known as inverse condemnation, a simple concept that allows landowners to challenge the taking of property by the government without compensation. Landowners should be afforded the ability to adequately challenge the necessity of takings by eminent domain, and landowners should receive attorney’s fees when they have to take the government to court to protect their property rights.
