Dear Mister Condo,
Where do I go to find rules for condo units in my state, city, or county? I live in the city of Oak Lawn, state of Illinois. County of Cook.
Mister Condo replies:
G.B., great question! Start here: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs3.asp?ActID=2200&ChapterID=62 This is the link to the Compiled Statutes regarding condos in the state of Illinois. You’ll find the Condominium Property Act here. It is a long read but all of the details are there. Also, read your own governance documents which detail many of the specific rules and regulations for your particular condominium. You should also check out a quick look-up guide produced by the folks at the Illinois Chapter of the Community Associations Institute – https://www.cai-illinois.org/legislation/illinois-condo-property-act-quick-find-index/ In fact, CAI-Illinois is a wealth of resources for you at https://www.cai-illinois.org. They have a great event coming up February 21 where you can learn and network with local industry experts. Check it out at https://www.cai-illinois.org/event/il-condo-hoa-conference-expo-2020/. I hope that helps! All the best!
