We also honored three Young Professionals Council Members, Scott Bryant, Stacy Funderburke, and Pearson Beardsley, for their work with the heirs property project and for serving as founding board members of the new Georgia Heirs Property Law Center.

Georgia Heirs Property Law Center



Did you know, Georgia Heirs Property Law Center (GHPLC)  is now independent  of Georgia Appleseed?  


What started as a project under Georgia Appleseed, has grown into a full center to serve heirs property owners in Georgia.
 

GHPLC Staff


Heirs property refers to a home or land that passes from generation to generation without a legally designated owner. In 2008, it was found that approximately 10% of the land in Georgia is heirs property.


We are proud of everyone who played a role in making this happen and are excited to see GHPLC's impact on our state.
