When parents, grand parents, or other ancestors leave land to their family they also leave legal problems.

More Information about Heir Property:   https://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/whatyouneedtoknowheirproperty.pdf

Ms. Wade is hosting a free seminar open to the public on the topic of Heirs Property. Register by May 11th, 2019 for the May 16th, 2019 event. https://www.wadelawfirmpllc.com/Register/

Local Attorney Helps Jackson Citizens Secure Generations Of Land Ownership

Free Heirs’ Property Seminar on May 16th with Special Guest Experts that Include State Rep. Robert L. Johnson, III and Hinds County Chancery Clerk, Eddie Jean Carr

 Attorney Vangela M. Wade is inviting the Metro Jackson, Mississippi community to her Free Heirs’ Property Seminar on May 16, 2019, 9am - 11am, at The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. Key information will be shared in regard to protecting land and ensuring a family’s land ownership legacy.

“Heirs’ Property refers to real property that passes from one person to another upon each person's death,” says Attorney Vangela M. Wade, President of The Wade Law Firm. “In most cases, without a Will or other legal instrument transferring ownership to that person's heirs, each heir then has an undivided interest in that property. Over time, this method of inheritance can lead to lack of ‘clear title’ and has the potential of diminishing the value of the property.” A lack of "clear title" makes property less marketable for sale or lease, can interfere with securing loans, grants and government assistance, and is the leading cause of black involuntary land loss.

This FREE seminar, led by Attorney Wade, with special guests State Rep. Robert L. Johnson, III and Hinds County Chancery Clerk, Eddie Jean Carr, will explain the nuances of heir property such as titling, lack of marketable title, and loss of ownership in treasured family land and property.

Registration for this FREE seminar is open to the public, however, seating is limited. To secure your seat, you must register with The Wade Law Firm before May 11th by calling 601-856-9967 or online at  https://wadelawfirmheirpropertyseminar.eventbrite.com.
