    Advanced TODI Topics

    Dick Bales
    Proper Title

    MCLE approved for 1-hour credit
    Registration is Free for IRELA Members
    Non-Members ~ $50

    Public Act 102-0068, amending what is now known as the Real Property Transfer on Death Instrument Act, took effect on January 1, 2022. IRELA members have already sliced and diced the highlights of this legislation. But now the fun has begun: How will title companies insure title pursuant to a Transfer on Death Instrument? But just as important, how will title companies insure title around a TODI, when someone other than the beneficiary is taking title to the land? Dick Bales had put together comprehensive materials on both these subjects. He has also prepared materials on three other “advanced TODI Topics”: TODI Disclaimer, TODIs and Joint Ownership of Land, and Revoking a TODI.


    Richard F. Bales is underwriting counsel for the Naperville office of Proper Title. He has worked in the title insurance industry since 1977.  He graduated from Illinois College in Jacksonville in 1973.  He received his juris doctorate degree from Northern Illinois University in 1983 and is admitted to practice law in Illinois.

    Bales used title company records to research and write his history book, The Great Chicago Fire and the Myth of Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow, which was published by McFarland & Co. in 2002. The manuscript for his American literature book, The Short Writings of Nelson Algren: A Study of the Stories, Essays, Articles, Reviews, Poems, and other Literature, has been accepted by McFarland. This book is scheduled to be released in 2022.
