Illinois Compiled Statutes
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.

(765 ILCS 405/2)
(from Ch. 148, par. 72)
Whenever any trustee of a land trust, or any beneficiary or
beneficiaries of a land trust, make application to the State of Illinois or
to any of its agencies or political subdivisions for any benefit,
authorization, license or permit, relating to the land which is the subject
of such trust, any interest therein, improvements thereto, or use thereof,
such application shall identify each beneficiary of such land trust by name
and address and define his interest therein.
Each beneficiary shall be identified, regardless of the size of the
beneficiary's interest in the land trust. During the term of the lease, the
trustee shall file supplements to the application identifying (by name,
address, and interest) each beneficiary added or deleted. A beneficiary
identified in an application or supplement shall not be a nominee for another
individual or entity. The application also
shall specify whether the land trust currently owns the property that is the
subject of the lease.
All such applications and supplements shall be
verified by the applicant in his capacity as trustee, or by the beneficiary
as a beneficial owner of an interest in such land trust. If such
application or supplement is filed by a body politic or other corporate
entity it shall be
verified by a duly authorized officer of such body politic or other
corporate entity for whom the application is made.
If an application or supplement is with respect to a lease of property to
the State, the application or supplement shall be filed with the head of the
appropriate State agency at least 30 days before the lease is executed.

trust, or any beneficiary or beneficiaries of a land trust, for any purpose
relating to the land which is the subject of such trust, any interest in
such land, improvements to such land or use of such land unless the grant
agreement authorizes the grantee to enter into such agreement and a
statement is first filed which identifies each beneficiary of such land
trust by name and address and defines his interest therein. The statement
shall be verified by the trustee, or by the beneficiary as a beneficial
owner of an interest in such land trust. If the statement is filed by a
body politic or other corporate entity it shall be verified by a duly
authorized officer of the body politic or other corporate entity for which
the statement is made. The statement shall be filed with the grantor
agency, and a copy of the statement shall be filed with the Comptroller as
an attachment to the grant agreement.
