City sponsors free workshop on heirs’ property

Published on February 21, 2023


All neighbors are invited to attend the free workshop, “Protecting Your Home: Solutions to Heirs’ Property,” sponsored by the City of Gainesville and presented by Three Rivers Legal Services, Inc.

When: Thursday, Feb. 23 from 6-7 p.m.

Where: Cultural Arts Coalition, 321 NW 10th Street

The city’s Heirs’ Property Assistance Program offers free probate legal assistance to individuals with an heirs’ property located within the Gainesville Community Reinvestment Area (GCRA) district.

An heirs’ property is a property that lacks a clear title and is not eligible for homestead tax exemptions or federal home improvement grants. Inheritors often encounter difficulties when seeking mortgage refinancing and bank loans. All of these factors may lead to an involuntary loss of property.

This workshop is part of the city’s Homeowner Education Campaign. The event is free and open to the public, and there will be snacks and door prizes. For more information, call 352-393-8618.
