Tangled Title Thursdays: Probate to Preserve Family Homes

Part two of VIP’s Tangled Title Thursdays series for National Homeownership Month.

Join our staff attorneys Mike Jones and Erin Agnew for a thirty-minute info session how VIP volunteer attorneys can help Philly homeowners. Each session will be followed by Q&A/office hours for current or interested volunteers.

Over 10,000 homes in Philadelphia have tangled titles, meaning the deed to a residential property is in the name of a deceased person. It costs on average $9,200 to resolve these matters by probate. With guidance and training from VIP, volunteer lawyers can clear up a tangled title in a matter of months at no cost to our low-income clients.

Check out our other sessions on deed drafting (June 13) and homeownership opportunities for litigators (June 27).

Please RSVP below and email Erin Agnew with questions.
