Heirs Property is the untold story of
blight and generational poverty in Georgia.
Georgia Heirs Property Law Center is a not-for-profit law firm that helps heirs property owners, nonprofits, and municipalities remediate fractured title, increase equity, and transfer wealth to the next generation through title clearing, wills creation, estate planning, and facilitating access to government, private sector, and nonprofit land management/home improvement programs. The Center has served Georgia since 2015. Staff work throughout the state with targeted outreach in Atlanta and southwest Georgia.
USDA Forest Service and UGA-Carl Vinson Researchers identified 38,120 acres as probable heirs property in 10 non-metro Georgia Counties. This is 11% to 25% of the total acres within these counties with a total tax appraised value of over two billion dollars ($2,148,951,361), equity that can’t be used.
