The Housing Committee of Jones County PLAN hosted the May 4 event at the D.V. Childs Civic Center, which was actually the second program presented on the subject. The first program took place at the Senior Center April 9 and was also well attended.
Housing Chairman Donald Black introduced panel members, Superior Court Clerk Bart Jackson and attorneys Richard Epps and Janell Calhoun.
Jackson kicked off the program with information about his experience in Superior Court with wills and heir property. His suggestion was the use of a professional.
“I deal with deeds and divorce cases all the time, but I would not try to do one myself,” he said.
The clerk told a story about a friend who insisted on creating his own deed for a property he was purchasing only to later discover it had a $10,000 tax lien on it.
