Libertyville Deeds Attorney

Serving Clients in Illinois & Missouri

Transferring ownership of a property is often a significant step in anyone’s life. Whether you are acquiring a new home or passing down a family asset, having a knowledgeable deeds lawyer in Illinois by your side can make all the difference. At Evans Legacy Law Group LLC, we ensure that your interests are protected and your transactions are handled efficiently, with a personal touch.

When it comes to understanding the complexity of deeds, it’s essential to break it down to basics. A deed is a legal document that transfers the ownership of a property from one person to another. In Illinois, various types of deeds can be used depending on the situation – warranty deeds, quitclaim deeds, and trustee’s deeds, to name a few. At the Evans Legacy Law Group LLC, we take time to explain these types to you in a simple and understandable manner, always aiming for a smooth transition for all parties involved.

Understanding Different Deeds in Illinois

Real estate transactions in Illinois involve the usage of different types of deeds, each tailored to cater to specific circumstances with varying levels of protection for the buyer. It is crucial to understand these variations to make informed decisions during property transactions. Let’s delve deeper into the main types of deeds you might encounter:

  1. Warranty Deeds: In Illinois, warranty deeds stand tall as the beacon of utmost protection for buyers. This deed ensures that the seller owns the property and has the full right to sell it. It protects the buyer from any debts or legal issues that the property might be entangled with, offering a guarantee not just for the property’s present status but also its entire history.
  2. Quitclaim Deeds: Quitclaim deeds come into the limelight, especially during transactions between family members, friends, or in divorce settlements. This type of deed doesn’t offer guarantees on the property’s history; it only transfers the current ownership interest. It is a streamlined, quick process, which can sometimes leave room for complications if not handled correctly.
  3. Trustee’s Deeds: Trustee’s deeds often make an appearance during foreclosures, representing a transfer from a defaulting owner to a new owner. While this type of deed doesn’t provide the expansive protection seen in warranty deeds, it does offer more safety compared to quitclaim deeds. It comes with certain assurances regarding the property’s status, but these are limited to the period the trustee held the property.
