"Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law."

The Missouri Ombudsman for Property Rights assists Missouri citizens “by providing guidance, which shall not constitute legal advice, to individuals seeking information regarding the condemnation process and procedures.” The Ombudsman also documents the use of eminent domain in Missouri along with any issues associated with its use and submits that information in an annual report to the General Assembly.

The Ombudsman’s office is within the Missouri Office of the Public Counsel. 

If you have questions regarding condemnation of property through the use of eminent domain, please contact the Ombudsman for guidance.

Please direct all inquiries to:
