Am I correct to assume that 'they' are the jurisdiction that wants to purchase your property? Eminent domain purchases (as all types of real estate transactions) are negotiable. Talk to your attorney, or real estate agent and get back to the negotiating table!

Generally (and I don't know the specifics here) it is because if you use an agent, they negotiate with the agent to get part of the commission which covers all or part of your relo benefits. However, if it's eminent domain, and it's part of the contract, well, I think you can force them to pay up. Great advice from the other agent - talk to your attorney. Good luck.
