How easements work

People in Illinois who are looking to buy a home will need to carefully evaluate not only features like the condition of the home, square footage and list price but also some things that may not be quite as obvious. An easement is one of these things. Seemingly simple, an easement can be something that becomes problematic when not properly understood. 

Who can put a lien on my home?

If you try to sell your home in Illinois, you may run into trouble if there is a lien on it. A lien is a claim to your property because you owe a debt. A creditor may put a lien on your home to ensure you pay back your debt, and if you do not, the creditor could take your home as payment. If you have a lien on your home, you cannot sell it without paying off the debt tied to the lien. You should not get too worried, though. Not just anyone can place a lien on your home, and even if they have a right, they must go through legal means to do so.

What are seller disclosure requirements in Illinois?

If you plan to sell residential real estate in Illinois, there are certain legal requirements of which you should be aware. One such requirement is your obligation to inform potential buyers of any material defects via the Residential Real Property Disclosure Report. This is per 765 ILCS 77 – Residential Real Property Disclosure Act
