Expropriation of land

Service Description

Expropriation is a form of state access to land or to rights to the land. In the case of many public tasks, e.g. the construction of roads or energy supply lines, private land is required to carry out the measure. If an amicable settlement is not possible and the planned project is therefore in danger of failing, various laws provide for expropriation.

Expropriation interferes with the fundamental right to property. Therefore, expropriation is only permissible if the land is absolutely necessary for the realization of a project. The project must serve the public good (e.g. road construction, energy supply). Expropriation may only take place in return for appropriate compensation.
