The Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation will be conducting a FREE Drive Thru Wills Clinic on Saturday, October 3rd at the Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation’s Orangeburg Office (396 St. Paul Street, Orangeburg, SC 29115) beginning at 10 am.
On the heels of the Center’s successful, initial Drive Thru Wills Clinic, held on September 12th in Charleston, this event will be held at the Center’s satellite office in Orangeburg. Everyone is welcome to get a free, simple Will drafted, but you must call in advance to make an appointment and reserve your time for that day’s Dive Thru Wills Clinic. Please contact Sharon Piggs at the Center: (843) 745-7055 to reserve your time.
Even if your own heirs’ property, you can still pass down your percentage of ownership to the loved ones you wish through a simple Will.
The Center welcomes the pro-bono assistance of local attorneys to conduct these Wills Clinics. We provide the simple Will templates and have a law student assist you. Please call the Center and ask for Sharon Piggs, if you would like to assist us and your community in this way.
The Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation is able to provide free Wills Clinics as a result of funding provided by: Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation, Coastal Community Foundation, Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, SC Bar Foundation, Surdna Foundation, USDA National Institute of Food & Agriculture, and US Endowment for Forestry & Communities.
The Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation has been protecting heirs’ property through legal education and direct legal services since 2005. In 2013, the Center began promoting the sustainable use of land through forestry education and services to provide increased economic benefit to low-wealth family land owners. The Center provides legal services and forestry services in Allendale, Bamberg, Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Clarendon, Colleton, Darlington, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry, Jasper, Marion, Orangeburg, Sumter and Williamsburg counties.
To date, the Center has provided 2,787 persons with free, one-hour “Advice and Counsel” (A&C) with 608 clients receiving direct legal services to clear title. A total of 1,168 simple wills have been drafted at free, community Wills Clinics; more than 430 families (who collectively own in excess of 22,000 acres) have benefited from various levels of education and expert resources to develop and implement sustainable forestry management plans, and 273 titles have been cleared on family land with a total tax-assessed value of $16.3 million.
