Plat Act Affidavit
Plat Act Affidavit *
Included supplemental form
The Illinois Plat Act (765 ILCS 205) regulates the division of land. Whenever owners of land subdivide it into two or more parts, any of which is less than five acres, they must have it surveyed and a subdivision plat of it made by the Illinois Registered Land Surveyor (765 ILCS 205/1(a)), unless any of the exceptions in the affidavit apply (765 ILCS 205/1(b)). If a plat is made by an Illinois Registered Surveyor of any parcel of land otherwise exempt from the plat provisions of this Act as indicated below, such plat shall be recorded (765 ILCS 205/1(c)). When a property is divided into parcels so that it cannot be described without describing it by metes and bounds, it is the duty of the owner to have the land surveyed and platted into lots. The platting shall be in accord with the Plat Act. The plat shall be certified and recorded (35 ILCS 200/9-55). The affiant is usually the grantor or the grantor’s authorized representative in a deed transferring interest in the real estate described in the accompanying deed. In the counties that require submission of the affidavit with every deed, option A on the form allows grantors to indicate that no division of land is taking place. If the land is being divided into lots, option B lists the statutory exemptions (# 1 through 10), as well as giving the option to enter county-specific exemptions that may apply (#11). For some of the exemptions on the list county (or municipal) approval may be required. If none of the exemptions apply, use option C, accompanied by the required survey and subdivision plat and information about the surveyor involved. Page 2 of the form only when approval is needed. Depending on the location of the property, this may involve submitting the division and subdivision plat to officials in the municipality for review.

What is the Illinois Transfer on Death Instrument?

Comparable to Ladybird, beneficiary, and enhanced life estate deeds, these instruments permit homeowners to name a beneficiary to gain title to their residential real property following the owner’s death, while retaining absolute possession of and control over the property while alive. Because the Illinois document DOES NOT transfer ownership when it’s executed, the owner may revoke the transfer at will, and is allowed to reallocate, sell, or otherwise dispose of the real estate as desired with no penalties, restrictions or obligation.

G.E. Ruban Said: The instruction and completed example really helped to understand the forms. The example was not perfectly specific to my situation but I doubt that they could make an example for every situation but it was close enough to show me the concept and point me in the right direction. Very good product I would recommend this to anyone.

Gina Johnson Said: Good morning The information was helpful and Im glad it was available online. Unfortunately I only needed the application since I am merely changing to my married name and adding my husband to the deed so I paid for documents I did not need. It would be nice to have the option to only purchase the forms needed. The site was easy to navigate. Thanks!
