Georgia enacted the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act in 2012 (House Bill 744), which preserves the rights of the heirs of an intestate landowner by adding a number of due process protections for partition procedures to state probate law that help to ensure all heirs receive a fair share of the proceeds if the property is sold. Inherited farmland is frequently negatively impacted without partition protections in place.
