CEMETERY TRANSFER GUIDELINES
Transfers can be made by the owner or owners of a lot, or we rely on notarized statements from the heirs that they are the sole survivors. If it is found that there are other heirs, then we rely on the following:
- A Will from the deceased owner.
- Power of Attorney. (living)
- The executor of the estate
- Notarized statements from all surviving heirs stating they do not object to the transfer.
Citizens can petition City Council through the Clerk of Council. Petition requests include the following:
- damage claims;
- purchases of property
There is no fee to file a petition (except for certain types of petitions, like encroachments or others which contain processing fees; see those specific forms for the current fees). https://www.savannahga.gov/1450/Petitions-Related-to-Real-Property
There is a $0.10 per page charge for copies of records, pursuant to State Open Records Act laws.
