Eminent domain means that the government really owns all the property in the US and that property can be seized. And no the US does not always pay fo that property. When the State widen the road in front of my father's farm, they took 6 feet along his entire road front and did not pay him a dime.
When siblings want to sell property inherited from parents but one does not agreed to sell, the others can go to court and force the contesting one to sell, which is a form of eviction. Especially if that was the one living in the house. and believe me I have seen it happen and the poor old lady was forced into a nursing home.
Faulty title searchs can cause the current owner to be evicted from their property because not all of the legal owners of that land were found to sign the deed. Meaning the people who sold you the property did not own it entirely.
