The Kelo Clause

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I signed a lease on a new apartment the other day and noticed a clause that wasn’t in any of my previous, pre-Kelo v. New London leases. If the government takes my apartment complex through eminent domain, I agree that I’ll immediately vacate, give up my interest in the lease, and not claim a right to a portion of the “just compensation” the management gets from the government.

It’s a condemned new world.
