Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

55 ILCS 5/3-5024

    (55 ILCS 5/3-5024) (from Ch. 34, par. 3-5024)
    Sec. 3-5024. Certificate of time of filing. When any instrument in writing is recorded in the recorder's office, the recorder shall indorse upon such instrument a certificate of the time (including the hour of the day) when the same was received for recordation (which shall be considered the time of recording the same), and the book and page in which the same is recorded. The recorder shall sign the certificate or shall affix his facsimile signature thereto. A physical or electronic image of the recorder's stamp satisfies the signature requirement for recorded instruments prior to, on, and after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly.
    The certificate, when signed by the recorder, or to which he has affixed his facsimile signature or a physical or electronic image of the recorder's stamp, shall be evidence of the facts therein stated.
