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.

    Sec. 75. Notice of death affidavit. Any beneficiary who takes under a transfer on death instrument may file in the office of the recorder in the county or counties where the residential real estate is located a notice of death affidavit to confirm title following the death of the owner. The notice of death affidavit shall contain the name and address, if known, of each beneficiary taking under the transfer on death instrument, the legal description of the property, the street address and parcel identification number of the residential real estate, if known, the date of the transfer on death instrument and its recording document number, the name of the deceased owner, the date and place of death, and the name and address to which all future tax bills should be mailed. The affidavit shall be acknowledged under penalty of perjury before a notary public or person authorized to administer oaths. The filing of the notice of death affidavit is not a condition to the transfer of title.
