What is a claim?

Print PDF

A notice of claim is a simple instrument. In a condemnation by a local government, only a notice of appearance demanding additional compensation is required. The State claim form tends to be slightly more complex. The function of the claim is simply to put the government on notice that the property owner intends to seek additional compensation. Claims for fixtures must be specific detailing the fixtures for which damages are claimed.
