In real estate, there are only two ways in which a government entity can acquire land.  They are eminent domain and escheat.

In eminent domain the government has the right to acquire privately owned land which it wants to put to public use, such as a new road.  The government cannot just seize the land; it must pay the owner the fair market value.  A property owner may contest the amount of money offered, but cannot sue to stop the process.

The other way in which government can acquire property is if a property owner dies without a will and without any family or heirs.  The land then reverts to the government which can dispose of the land as it sees fit.

If you need help sorting between fact and fiction in real estate give me a call.
