East Bridgewater Council on Aging Hosts Homestead Discussion

On Wednesday, June 15th, the East Bridgewater Council on Aging hosted a discussion of the new Homestead Act. The new Homestead Act recently passed by the legislature and signed by the governor makes many positive changes to the statute and expands coverage in several situations. (See Secretary of State Galvin’s summary on this website).

The members of the COA had many questions about how the changes in the law affected their individual circumstances.  A description of the Registry of Deeds and how to get access to their land records followed. Pictures of the event are provided.

The new East Bridgewater Council on Aging facility is underway and is being built on town owned land near Sachem Rock (Route 106).  It is expected to be opened sometime in the fall of 2012.
