Real estate attorneys work with deeds every day. Attorneys for sellers of land prepare deeds for their closings.

Public Act 102-927 recently amended 765 ILCS 5/8, the statute on special warranty deeds. This new legislation has resulted in some controversy. Dick has attempted to study the issues from all angles, and he hopes to provide some thoughtful commentary on this very topical subject.
