Corporate Memo: 
New 2016 ALTA Commitment Form

In October, we sent a Chicago Title NCS Chicago News Brief email with our corporate memo to customers with important information regarding the new 2016 ALTA commitment form.  The details include revisions and important clarifications regarding the obligations of all parties.  Click HERE to download the memo and 2016 ALTA commitment form.
Effective January 1, 2018, Public Act 100-22 (SB9) authorized the Illinois Department of Revenue ("IDOR") to provide a uniform statewide system for the filing of notices for state tax liens. IDOR will no longer be recording its liens or releases with local county recorders; instead, it will now maintain its own searchable lien registry to file state tax liens in their online database. 

Click HERE to read our recent Karlen's Korner article providing an overview of the filing of state tax liens and the IDOR database.

Kathy McCoy serves as Assistant Vice President and Escrow Officer for our CT NCS Chicago operation.  Kathy joined the company in 1998 as a contract closer in the residential department.  In 2005, Kathy joined the NCS Chicago operation full time working on residential closings and closed many residential condominium projects.  She currently works on local and national commercial transactions with a wide variety of customers and tackles all of her closings with professionalism and efficiency.
