Real Estate in Illinois

Real estate sellers in the state of Illinois are required to reveal any important defects in their property prior to putting the property on the market. By forcing sellers to reveal all defects prior to taking any offers, the state of Illinois is helping buyers to become more informed about their real estate options. The disclosure laws for Illinois also make it much more likely that a property owner will make necessary repairs to a property before putting it on the market, as opposed to leaving those repairs up to the buyer.

Before submitting an offer on a piece of real estate, the state of Illinois recommends that buyers do a title search on the property. This type of search will show if there are any financial liens against the property, or if the property boundary lines are impeding on the neighboring property in some way. In Illinois, a buyer can demand that a buyer fix any issues with the title search before submitting a binding offer. Many sellers in Illinois often do their own title search prior to putting their property up for sale to find and take care of any issues that may slow down the selling process.
