Heirs Property Summits Planned in North Carolina

Cooperative Extension at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will lead a new effort to help property owners protect and preserve land in North Carolina that their families have held for generations. In collaboration with North Carolina State University, the project, “Understanding Heirs’ Property at the Community Level in North Carolina,” aims to identify and educate heirs property owners across the state. Five day-long summit meetings across North Carolina will cover the history of heirs property, inform participants about estate planning and legal strategies to secure their land, and provide other technical assistance. The summits also will feature a panel discussion among landowners who are dealing with or have previously dealt with heirs property issues.
