RAYMONDVILLE, Texas – Legal services are now available at FEMA disaster recovery centers across the Rio Grande Valley.
The federal agency is working together with state and local officials to help those affected by the recent June floods.
A spokesperson tells Local 23 news that they are getting reports from renters being evicted by landlords following the recent damage. They say legal help may be available for qualifying applicants.
“Whether they’ve asked you to leave, whether they’ve provided you with information to leave, come into the disaster recovery centers. These people are standing by and they’re able to help you for some type of legal tactic,” says La-Tanga Hopes, a FEMA spokesperson.
Along with helping renters, legal help is available for homeowners verifying inherited homes and insurance related claims.
