Heir property is land held in common by the descendants of someone who has died without a will. While it may foster a sense of community, holding land as heir property is also one of the leading causes of land loss among African Americans. This publication explains the history of heir property and the misconceptions surrounding it, as well as potential risks and proper steps to take to protect your land in the state of Alabama. Includes glossary of terms.
