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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(c) Notwithstanding the requirements in subsection (a), a mortgage lender that provides notice at least annually to a borrower in the manner provided in subsection (b) of a means of
communication for the borrower to access the
information set forth in subsection (a) by telephone, facsimile, e-mail, Internet access, or other means of communication, is deemed to be in
