Estate Planning

My Home, My Deed, My Legacy Campaign Launched!

On April 1, MVLS, in collaboration with the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), launched “My Home, My Deed, My Legacy”, a citywide public awareness program to educate Baltimore City residents – especially low-income residents – about the importance of estate planning and the critical need to confirm their name is on the deed to their property.

Thanks to a generous grant from Maryland DHCD, homeowners can access the online information hub or the homeowner hotline (443-451-4066) to learn more about estate planning and walk through the process on their own.

In addition to raising awareness of legal homeownership and the deed recording process, the “My Home, My Deed, My Legacy” campaign will educate and inform the public about the estate administration process, the importance of wills and health care directives, and steps to avoid probate.

MVLS will also offer three homeowner clinics:

  • June 18 | 3 – 7 pm
    • Arch Social Club, 2426 Pennsylvania Avenue, Baltimore
  • August 15 | 3 – 7 pm
    • 29th Street Community Center, 300 E 29th Street, Baltimore
  • October 3 | 3 – 7 pm
    • Southeast Anchor Library, 3601 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore

Pre-registration is required to attend. To register, visit   

Those who meet MVLS’s eligibility criteria can also contact our intake line (410-547-6537) or apply online at to request full attorney representation.
