Learn to Help Residents with “Tangled Titles”
Sept. 25, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Residents of an estimated 4,000 properties in Allegheny County do not have titles to the homes they live in. Without title, they cannot repair or weatherize the property, or resolve tax and mortgage issues. Clearing the "tangled titles" for these properties helps more than the residents--it helps entire communities preserve owner equity and avoid blight.
Neighborhood Legal Services Association will train attorneys to help residents gain proper title to their homes. The CLE will be held on Sep. 25, 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and will be hosted by Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney at One Oxford Centre, 301 Grant St, 20th Floor, Pittsburgh, PA, 15219. Registration is FREE for attorneys who volunteer to take at least one tangled title case in 2018.
