Free Title Clearing and More

A new title clearing collaborative was recently formed by
Louisiana Appleseed, Southeast La. Legal Services.

The Pro Bono Project, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.  The collaborative will work together to help 400 low-income home owners in Orleans Parish clear title to their property free of charge, enabling residents to rebuild, make productive use of their land, and build wealth and assets.   

The attorneys can also help with successions, property liens, blight judgments, co-owner disputes, and tax sales.

Volunteers are available to come speak to your community about property and title clearing.  They will also distribute copies of Louisiana Appleseed’s “Protect Your Property” booklet and talk about how these free legal services can be accessed.   

If you are interested in scheduling an outreach event for your group, please contact Jessie Haynes, Program Director of Louisiana Appleseed, at 504-561-7304 or
