Inverse condemnation, or de facto condemnation, is when the government or an authoritarian agency has seized property outside of the condemnation process. These situations may come about through a variety of oversights. Improper surveying, an improper title search or any of a number of other issues may have led to the taking of the property.

Often these seizures are able to happen due to the remoteness of the property or some other factor that prevents the owner from being able to maintain a vigilant watch over his or her property. The owner has, in most cases, been paying taxes on the property and otherwise maintaining his or her ownership. The government may come and build on the property or otherwise assert control over it in such a way that the partial or total value of the property has been taken from the owner.

As there is no denying that the government has asserted control over the property, the main question usually focuses on the value of the property taken.
