VALDOSTA – The City of Valdosta and the Georgia Heirs Property Law Center will host an heirs property prevention and estate planning workshop, 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Nov. 10.

The workshop will be held at Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority, 1901 N. Forrest St., city officials said. 

“This program is being presented by the city to assist our residents with an issue some do not think they have. Most housing rehab assistance programs, including ours, requires that the title to a home be cleared of any heirs property issues before we can offer assistance, so we thought this was important to offer this information and service to our residents,” said Vanassa Flucas, neighborhood development director.

Georgia Heirs Property Law Center will provide information about why heirs property is a problem, how to identify if you are an heirs property owner, how to prevent heirs property, the importance of estate planning and the probate process.

Georgia Heirs Property Law Center will conduct one-on-one consultations for 10 heirs property owners immediately following the workshop, organizers said. Call (229) 671-3617 to register, as advanced registration is required for consultations.

If a church, city or organization is interested in having Georgia Heirs Property Law Center make a presentation, email Rural Community Advocate Teresa Moore, tmoore@gaheirsproperty.org.
