Please join us for a training on an issue affecting farmers across NC: heirs’ property. Heirs’ property is land that is jointly owned by descendants of a deceased person whose estate was never handled in probate court and is passed down from generation to generation. These joint owners (heirs) have the right to use the property, but none of them have a clear title.
Community Food Strategies hosts Black Family Land Trust on April 27 from 2-3:30 PM for an overview of heirs’ property issues and a conversation about how to resolve them. Several guest speakers will join to discuss potential solutions to the problem, including the Uniform Partition Act, introduced last year in the NC General Assembly.
This training is for anyone trying to resolve their own family heirs’ property challenges or community advocates wanting to know how they can support members of their community who are facing these challenges.
