A recent Ask the Expert Q&A led CCR to the Cook County Clerk's website and a particular resource related to property matters after death. A video posted on the Clerk's site is alerting homeowners to property fraud schemes and encouraging homeowners to create a plan for how their property will be handled after their death.
We were surprised to learn that the Cook County Treasurer herself has been a victim of property fraud. And while it's not an easy topic to address, it's important to have a plan that ensures your assets will be properly transferred after your death.

A condominium community depends on its volunteer board members to function successfully. These individuals contribute their time and resources on behalf of all of their owners, and the job is rarely an easy one. This is particularly true in smaller, self-managing buildings that do not have a property manager to lighten the load.
As we count our blessings on Thanksgiving, Chicago Condo Resource and Haus Financial Services would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all the condo board members who donate their valuable time working to support their associations.
If you are a condo board member, thank you for all that you do.
If you are an owner, take time this week to extend your appreciation to your board. They deserve it.
Recognition of your board's efforts and gratitude for their sacrifice go a long way toward making condo living successful. Happy Thanksgiving!
