The Government Retains Its Right to Enter onto Private Property for Testing and Other Purposes

July 29, 2016 | Bulletin No. 1274002.1

The California Supreme Court has confirmed the constitutionality of statutes allowing a public entity to enter onto private property for testing and other purposes prior to deciding whether or not to condemn the property. These statutes allow a public entity to apply for a court order permitting pre-condemnation access to property for purposes such as environmental testing and on-site investigations. The scope of this power was called into doubt after a Court of Appeal held these statutes authorized entry under only limited circumstances for innocuous purposes.
