19-0043461 Urgent Need
Client seeks assistance with a time-sensitive probate matter. Client’s sewage system requires repairs and she cannot qualify for a HELP loan until she has obtained title to her home. Client’s home is titled in the name of her deceased great-grandmother. Client’s great-grandmother died in 1957, and although client’s grandmother obtained Letters of Administration over 35 years ago, title was never transferred out of record owner’s estate. Great-grandmother’s heirs are client’s two great aunts, her uncle, her three cousins and her mother. Because client’s uncle, and possibly her great aunts as well, cannot be located despite client’s significant efforts, an attorney is needed to file a § 3546 petition for determination of title to the property in Orphan’s Court in order to obtain title for client.
