After spending years taking care of her elderly father, Agnes* was left with a home but not the title to ownership when he passed away. Their family home in the West End of Pittsburgh was in desperate need of repair but without a title, re-financing was out of reach.
NLS housing attorney Daniel Haller helped Agnes secure the title to the home by helping her obtain her father’s death certificate and locating numerous family members who needed to be notified before she was able to move forward with transferring the title to her name.
Since gaining the title, Agnes has been able to negotiate payment plans to make her debt manageable and utilize social services for future repairs on her home.
“I don’t know what I would have done without the help of Neighborhood Legal Services. Every step of the way they were available to explain things to me, get the necessary paperwork and finally, the title to my home. I’ll be forever grateful, ” she said.
