Case #22-0048704

Client needs help with taking title to her home. The property is currently in her husband’s name, who died intestate on June 10, 2019, leaving behind Client and six children as heirs. Five children are willing to convey their interest; the sixth is currently incarcerated and Client does not believe he will assist. As such, she seeks help obtaining partial title. Client received letters of administration for husband’s estate in September 2019. The property is habitable with the exception of a leaking roof. Client would like to apply to home repair programs for assistance with the cost of repairing the roof; however, she will not qualify until she has at least partial title in her name. A volunteer is needed to prepare a deed transferring title of the property into Client’s name so that she may apply for needed home repair assistance.
