Proper estate planning is the only way to preserve generational wealth. By making a will, you can avoid a “Tangled Title,” which is a situation where a home is still legally in the name of a deceased person.
Through the Probate Deferment Initiative (PDI), the Register of Wills and the Department of Records are waiving and deferring fees associated with tangled titles. You can also get access to free legal assistance to fix your deed and make a will.
Don’t leave your family in a difficult situation after you pass! Contact us at ROW.PDI@phila.gov or call (215) 686-6250 to find out if you’re eligible for PDI and get connected with free legal assistance. You can also watch our series of public service announcements and learn more.
