Can the USA government expropriate USA property from a Canadian?Region: Ontario Answer # 1088
Under the doctrine of eminent domain, the United States government can expropriate property without one’s consent. The doctrine allows the government to seize people’s homes and convert it into public use as long as they are compensated at fair market value. These laws apply regardless of whether the owner of the property is a non-resident of the USA. Generally speaking, however, this is not likely to ever occur. It is usually a safe investment for Canadians to own property in the United States whether the property is a vacation residency or just a real estate investment.
