AN ACT in relation to civil procedure.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Code of Civil Procedure is amended by
changing Section 13-222 as follows:
(735 ILCS 5/13-222) (from Ch. 110, par. 13-222)
Sec. 13-222. Action against land surveyor.
(a) Registered land surveyor. No action may be brought
against a Registered Land Surveyor to recover damages for
negligence, errors or omissions in the making of any survey
nor for contribution or indemnity related to such negligence,
errors or omissions more than 4 years after the person
claiming such damages actually knows or should have known of
such negligence, errors or omissions. This Section applies to
surveys completed after July 26, 1967. This subsection (a)
applies only to causes of action accruing before the
effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General
(b) Professional land surveyor. No action may be
brought against a professional land surveyor to recover
damages for negligence, errors, omissions, torts, breaches of
contract, or otherwise in the making of any survey, nor
contribution or indemnity, more than 4 years after the person
claiming the damages actually knows or should have known of
the negligence, errors, omissions, torts, breaches of
contract, or other action.
In no event may such an action be brought if 10 years
have elapsed from the time of the act or omission. Any
person who discovers the act or omission before expiration of
the 10-year period, however, may in no event have less than 4
years to bring an action. Contract actions against a surety
on a payment or performance bond must be commenced within the
same time limitation applicable to the bond principal.
If the person entitled to bring the action is under the
age of 18 or under a legal disability, the period of
limitation does not begin to run until the person reaches 18
years of age or the disability is removed.
This subsection (b) applies to causes of action accruing
on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the
92nd General Assembly.
