Section 6: Policies on Appraisal and State Acquisition of Improvements (for State and LPA)Anchor: #i1004496
Include all buildings, structures, or other improvements located on right of way parcels in appraisals, whether owned by the landowners or lessees, when determined to be real property under state law.
If TxDOT acquires improvements, dispose of them according to provisions of Disposal of Right of Way Improvements. See Owner Retention of Improvements for information on owner retention of real property improvements.
Alternatively TxDOT (or a LPA) may allow the property owner to retain improvements as part of a negotiated purchase. Make appropriate reductions in the parcel price if the property owner retains improvements.
