Litigation

Litigation

Mr. Benedict has appraised real estate for both condemnors and condemnees. This has been done under the federal and state rules pertaining to litigation valuations. This has been done for the General Service Administration, Departments of the Army and Navy, and the Federal Aeronautics Department.

Litigation appraising has also been done for various departments of the State of Connecticut, with emphasis on the Department of Transportation (DOT).  This type of appraising has also been completed for numerous private owners and their attorneys.  Numerous municipalities have retained Norman Benedict Associates, Inc. to complete condemnation appraisals in conjunction with engineering and educational projects.

The companion to the preparation of condemnation appraisals is that this firm has occassionally valued land for release by a government agency into private ownership, or from one private owner to another private owner.  This has often been done in order to expand the adjacent private ownership or to create plottage for more major real estate develpment projects.
