UMES Extension will host an Heirs’ Property Education Workshop on March 28. The event will be held from 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the UMES Richard A. Henson Center Ballroom on the main campus in Princess Anne, with opening remarks expected at 8:30 a.m.

Heirs’ property is family-owned property inherited by multiple generations without the formal legal proceedings necessary to prove ownership. As a result, the heirs lack the clear title necessary to prove their ownership status. This means they may not be able to sell the property, use the property as collateral for financing, or receive USDA benefits for farming activities conducted on the property. It also means they may be at a greater risk of losing the property through a partition action or because they fail to pay their property taxes.

This workshop is the first of many workshops that will be presented across Maryland in the next several months. The workshop will provide information about the impacts of heirs' property, how to prevent creating heirs' property, and how to resolve heirs' property in Maryland, including information about Maryland's Partition of Property Act.

COST: $10 per person, includes breakfast and lunch

REGISTRATION: Pre-registration is required and ends March 22. No walk-ups will be accepted. Register HERE.


A limited-number of scholarships are available to attendees on a first-come basis. Those interested in applying for a scholarship, should contact Dr. Lila B. Karki at for more information.
