PA Propose Bill To Change Eminent Domain Professional Fee Reimbursement Structure

Posted in Eminent Domain

The Pennsylvania Eminent Code currently provides for reimbursement of up to $4,000 for “reasonable expenses actually incurred for appraisal, attorney and engineering fees.”  A recently introduced bill would amend that section to provide for reimbursement of up to $4,000 “per property.”  It would also limit the reimbursement to $1,000 “where the taking is for an easement related to underground piping for water or sewer infrastructure.”  This bill was just introduced and it is unclear whether it will ultimately be passed.
