Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

625 ILCS 45/3-4

    (625 ILCS 45/3-4) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 313-4)
    Sec. 3-4. Destruction, sale, transfer or abandonment. The owner of any watercraft shall within 15 days notify the Department if the watercraft is destroyed or abandoned, or is sold or transferred either wholly or in part to another person or persons. In sale or transfer cases, the notice shall be accompanied by a surrender of the certificate of number. In destruction or abandonment cases, the notice shall be accompanied by a surrender of the certificate of title. When the surrender of the certificate is by reason of the watercraft being destroyed or abandoned, the Department shall cancel the certificate and enter such fact in its records. The Department shall be notified in writing of any change of address. Should the owner desire a new certificate of number, showing the new address, he shall surrender his old certificate and notify the Department of the new address, remitting $1 to cover the issuance of a new certificate of number. If the surrender is by reason of a sale or transfer either wholly or in part to another person or persons, the owner surrendering the certificate shall state to the Department, under oath, the name of the purchaser or transferee.
    Non-powered watercraft are exempt from this Section.
