    An attorney could walk down the street and see three identical buildings. Although these buildings might be identical on the outside, one could be a townhouse, one could be a condominium, and one could be a cooperative. What is the difference between these three types of multi-family living structures? Dick Bales will discuss all three, with plenty of practical information for the real estate practitioner.

    All attorneys know of liens like judgments and state income tax liens. But there are other types of Illinois liens that may not be so familiar to the real estate lawyer. In addition, there is even information about commonly known liens of which the attorney may not be aware.  Dick Bales will discuss “weird lien” information about several types of Illinois liens. In addition, he has put together a “lien encyclopedia” of virtually every type of Illinois lien that the real estate practitioner will ever encounter.
