Westlaw tip: Locate home affordability and housing crisis resources

March 23, 2011

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysA single search in the Help for Homeowners Multibase (H4H) can retrieve a wide range of legal and nonlegal sources related to home affordability and the current housing crisis, including the United States Code Annotated (USCA) and Code of Federal Regulations, Federal Register notices, U.S. public laws, treatises, press releases, newspaper articles, and transcripts of hearings and news broadcasts.

For example, suppose you want to gather legal and nonlegal materials related to funding for legal assistance for homeowners facing foreclosure. Access H4H, click the Terms and Connectors tab, and type a query such as the following:

legal /5 assistance aid /s foreclosure /s fund! grant allocat!
