New Illinois Condo Owner’s Handbook Now Available Online

Illinois condo owners handbook now online

For Immediate Release: August 7, 2017 – CHICAGO, IL – 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/.
