Heirs' Property Workshop at James R. Frazier Center
 

On Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Horry County will be partnering with the Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation to offer a seminar at the James R. Frazier Community Center located in Bucksport. 

 

This seminar will help families understand how to move forward to resolve their heirs’ property issues so they can receive federal assistance in the future, such as Horry County’s housing rehabilitation program. The Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation aims to educate families on the legal services needed to resolve their heirs’ property issues. They work with Horry County, along with 21 other counties across South Carolina, to provide free educational seminars in the community. 

 

´╗┐This particular seminar will concentrate on families that have essential repairs to be fixed on their properties, have applied for Horry County’s rehab program, and have been denied due to having heirs’ property issues. We are hoping that through this seminar we will be able to provide these households with the information necessary and the next steps to take to resolve these issues. Subsequently, in the future they will be eligible for our housing rehab program and will have repairs made on their homes to make them safe and sustainable.
