CHICAGO – Illinois condominium owners now have a comprehensive, educational guide at their fingertips
thanks to a recently compiled handbook by the Illinois Condominium and Common Interest Community (CCIC)
Ombudsperson, Adrienne Levatino. The Condo Unit Owner’s Rights and Responsibilities Handbook provides an
unbiased, objective look at Illinois law governing condominium unit owners and marks the kick-off of the
Ombudsperson’s educational program aimed at informing condo owners of their rights and responsibilities.
Future publications will address the rights of condominium and common interest association boards and the
rights and responsibilities of owners living in common interest communities.

“Living in a condominium community presents its own unique set of challenges that are starkly different from
those in a single family dwelling”, said Kreg Allison, Director of the Division of Real Estate (“DRE”) for the Illinois
Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (“IDFPR”). “Individual rights and obligations can often be
confused in the condo setting, leading to disputes between unit owners and associations. By providing an easily
accessible, inclusive handbook for condo owners, we strive to educate everyone involved, set reasonable
expectations, and minimize disputes.”

The Condo Unit Owner’s Rights and Responsibilities Handbook may be found in the Publications tab on the CCIC
Ombudsperson webpage at http://www.idfpr.com/CCICO/.
