REMOVE BARRIERS TO RECOVERY AFTER A DISASTER NOW
For many families, the lack of clear title to inherited property created serious barriers to their recovery after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. People who live on property passed down to them without a will or by family agreement, without using the legal system, do not have clear tile to property. Owners without clear title cannot sell the property, use the property as collateral for a loan, or get federal or state disaster aid. Since the 2005 hurricanes, the inheritance process has become easier and less expensive for many people. If you live on property you inherited, please call the Louisiana Civil Justice Center at 1-800-310-7029 or Louisiana Appleseed at 504-561-7304 to learn how you can get clear legal title to your property.
