Homesteading Protects Assets In Tough Times

Did you know that in Illinois, homeowners can register a property as a homestead to keep it off-limits to creditors? The homestead law is meant to prevent homeowners from becoming homeless when the economy crashes. There are a lot of limits and rules around it, though, so you'll need a smart real estate attorney to review your individual circumstances and documentation. There are also real estate laws specific to Chicago, including lease and rental agreement laws, security deposit laws, commercial development laws and many more.
