DATE: July 27th 2011

Effective September 1st, 2011 we will no longer check documents for the Illinois State Statutory requirements. As done in other counties, if a correction is needed, we will send a memo out with the recorded document once it has been processed. At that time you may wish to re-record the documents with the correct information. The fee for re-recording will be your responsibility.

There are a few exceptions. We will continue to review the Certificates of Compliance and Exemptions for mortgages, the Certificates of Service on Lis Pendens, PTAX’s, UCC’s and maps.


Just a reminder, we have Plat Act Affidavits and Recording Cover Pages on our website at These and other forms can be printed free of charge.

To help avoid having a document re-recorded please check the documents thoroughly before sending them to us. If you have questions about the statutory requirements, please contact us or visit the Statute. We will be happy to talk with you or set up an appointment to go over the recording process and information for which we are looking.
