(35 ILCS 516/395)
Reimbursement of a county or municipality before issuance of tax
certificate of title.
Except in any proceeding in which the tax purchaser is a county acting as trustee for taxing districts as provided in Section 35, an order for the issuance of a tax certificate of title
under this Act shall not be entered affecting the title to or interest in any
mobile home in which a county, city, village, or incorporated town has an interest
under the police and welfare power by
advancements made from public funds, until the purchaser or assignee makes
reimbursement to the county, city, village, or incorporated town of the money so
advanced or the county, city, village, or town waives its lien on the mobile home for
the money so advanced. However, in lieu of reimbursement or waiver, the
purchaser or his or her
assignee may make application for and the court shall order that the tax
purchase be set aside as a sale in error. A filing or appearance fee shall not
be required of a county, city, village, or incorporated town seeking to enforce its
claim under this Section in a tax certificate of title proceeding.
The changes made by this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly are intended to be declarative of existing law.
