HB 2024 Condemnation powers and proceedings; notice to owner or tenant.
SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)
Condemnation powers and proceedings; notice to owner or tenant. Requires an authorized condemnor or the Commissioner of Highways to give notice to the owner or tenant of freehold property subject to condemnation between 30 and 45 days prior to the filing or recordation of a certificate in any "quick take" condemnation proceeding. Current law requires notice but does not provide a time frame within which such notice must be given. The bill also requires such condemnor to notify the owner or tenant within four business days of the filing or recording by providing a copy of the certificate by certified or registered mail.
