Serving clients throughout Illinois, Codilis and Associates, P.C., has experience in complex litigation assignments and issues of foreclosure and bankruptcy. The Codilis team also undertakes title curative work through a dedicated title department that focuses on resolving title issues.
Codilis & Associates emphasizes the importance of these activities as a way of resolving foreclosure matters and achieving successful real estate transaction closures. The firm’s title curative activities resolve chain of title defects caused by error or ambiguity.
A focus is on ensuring that the record title matches the actual possession and use of the property. The deed or lease must describe the land in a way that is consistent with both jurisdictional requirements and county law. The acknowledgment must also be in the correct form, or the document may be deemed executed.
Other aspects of the title curative process involve making sure that sufficient testator intent is shown in wills and other documents related to the conveyance of the title to a new owner. In cases of divorce, the title transfer must be conveyed via the family court and properly filed.
