Kickstart Session: Tangled Titles

Please join us for our next Kickstart Session!


Date: Monday, August 22nd
Time: 5:30 – 6:30 pm
Location: Zoom


A tangled title is a property title that does not that accurately reflect the present homeowner’s claim to the home. This can result in a major barrier to acquisition that is especially difficult for a new developer to navigate.


Jaclyn Quinn, Esq. is an experienced attorney in navigating tangled titles. Come learn about how tangled titled issues can be resolved and ease the path to sourcing your property.  During this Kickstart Session, we will explore:


  • What is a tangled title and how does it occur?
  • As a developer, what should you do if a property has a tangled title?
  • How can you work with a homeowner to resolve a tangled title issue?
  • What resources are available to address tangled titles?
Please register by August 18th to ensure receipt of the Zoom link needed to attend this session. We look forward to seeing you on August 22nd!



Kickstart Sessions complement the Jumpstart Wilmington program and offer information around specific topics related to the development process.

Jumpstart Wilmington was launched to help Wilmington residents to become developers of their own neighborhood through quality, community-focused real estate development training and financing options. Our program is modeled after the original Jumpstart Germantown Program, which was created by Ken Weinstein to facilitate the revitalization of the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia through high quality residential renovations.


Increased local developer capacity in Wilmington is the key to scaling development activity and revitalizing communities more rapidly. We see residents of Wilmington communities as the best resource for neighborhood revitalization, as many have potential to effect positive change in their neighborhoods. Jumpstart Wilmington can provide aspiring developers who live in Wilmington communities with the skills, knowledge, and support they need to rehabilitate key properties, one at a time. In the absence of established real estate developers willing to invest in smaller scale projects, this program will cultivate a force of new local developers who currently reside in Wilmington or have a commitment to improving Wilmington neighborhoods.
