Get free, public legal help information -- for people in Louisiana.
The first guide is Flood Proof: Legal Help for Homeowners with Title Problems.
The Flood Proof guide is meant for people in Louisiana who suffered the 2016 flood. It helps those who have a home, but who don't have legal proof that they own their home. For example, if you inherited your home, but you never officially transferred title to your name.
If you need to prove that you own a home left to you by a loved home who passed away, you may need legal help. This is especially important after a disaster. Proving you own your home is necessary to qualify for FEMA, loans, insurance, or other rebuilding funds.
Use the Flood Proof guide to assemble key information and documents together, and then determine if you are eligible for free legal assistance from a local service provider. If you are eligible, then you can use the app to connect to help, in order to file papers with the government, in an effort to clear title to your house.
Important note: This app does not contain legal advice, and it does not form a lawyer-client relationship. It is meant only for use in Louisiana.
