Louisiana Appleseed’s Pro Bono Legal and Title Search

Louisiana Appleseed is a nonprofit dedicated to solving our state’s toughest problems at the root cause through policy-oriented research and advocacy. One of LA Appleseed’s programs emphasizes that title to inherited property does not automatically pass to a family member (“heir”). Without clear title to the property, the heir will be unable to sell the property, get federal or state recovery funds after a disaster, or borrow money against the property. But getting clear title may be as easy as filing an Heirship Affidavit.
