Passing a home to the next generation
8/7/2020, 6 a.m.
Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS), the largest provider of probono civil legal services to Marylanders in need, and the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) created the “ My Home, My Deed, My Legacy” program to help Marylanders experiencing financial hardships understand the importance of estate planning and ways to ensure their one wealth-building asset— their home— can pass to future generations.
MVLS’s remote “My Home, My Deed, My Legacy” clinic will be conducted via telephone on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. to help homeowners:
*Confirm their name is on the deed to their home
*Create estate plans
*Identify structures for avoiding pro- bate
*Navigate estate administration issues
Volunteer and staff attorneys will provide full representation for estate planning and other deed-related issues. This virtual clinic is produced in collaboration with Fight Blight Bmore, Parity Homes and Robinson Group.
Pre-registration is required. To register for free, contact John Kern at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 443-451- 4082.
Maryland residents have access to estate planning resources, including online information (www.myhomemydeed.org), a “Homeowner” hotline 443-451-4066 and support from volunteer and staff attorneys through clinics.
