Illinois Recorder Information
Real property records are maintained by the recorder in the county where the property is located. Recording a deed constitutes constructive notice of the property transfer.

At the time a deed is presented for recording, or within three business days after the transfer of property has taken effect, a declaration signed by at least one of the sellers and at least one of the buyers shall be presented to the recorder.

This declaration shall state information such as, but not be limited to, the following:
The value of the real property or beneficial interest in real property; the parcel identification number of the property; the legal description of the property; the date of the deed, the date the transfer was effected, or the date of the trust document; the type of deed, transfer, or trust document; the address of the property; the type of improvement, if any, on the property; information as to whether the transfer is between related individuals, corporate affiliates, or is a compulsory transaction; the lot size or acreage; the value of the personal property sold with the real estate; the year the contract was initiated (for installment sales); any homestead exemptions as reflected on the most recent annual tax bill; the name, address, and telephone number of the person preparing the declaration; and whether the transfer is pursuant to compulsory sale.
