(215 ILCS 5/525.4) (from Ch. 73, par. 1965.72-4)
    Sec. 525.4. Application for Coverage of Risks by the Facility. (1) In the event that the Industry Placement Facility proposes to issue policies of insurance or endorsements thereto pursuant to subsection (1) of Section 525.1, the Facility shall require a written application for such policies or endorsements. All applications shall be incorporated into the policy or endorsement for which application was made.
    (2) Applications for coverage of risks on property which is held in a land trust, except applications for policies described in subsection (b) of Section 143.13, shall disclose all beneficial interests in the property in accordance with "An Act to require disclosure, under certification of perjury, of all beneficial interests in real property held in a land trust, in certain cases", approved September 21, 1973, as amended. Changes, which result in an aggregate of 25%, in beneficial interest in the property subsequent to the verification made in the application shall be reported by the applicant or policy holder to the Facility no later than 10 days after the change in beneficial interest occurs. This shall not apply to transfer of beneficial interest to members of the immediate family including spouse, children and grandchildren and their spouses, parents, sisters and brothers. Changes in beneficial interest which result in an aggregate of less than 25% shall be reported at the time of renewal of the policy. Disclosure of the beneficial interests in such property is deemed material to the application for new coverage or the continuation of existing coverage and failure to disclose all beneficial interests, including any changes therein, renders the contract of insurance voidable at the option of the Facility. Upon being notified of any change in beneficial interest, the Facility shall reevaluate its risk of loss as if the risk were a new application for coverage. When a policy subject to this Section is issued or applied for, the Facility shall give written notice as to the requirements of this Section to the named insured or applicant and all beneficiaries disclosed in the application.
    (3) Applications for policies or endorsements covering real property, except applications for policies described in subsection (b) of Section 143.13, shall include the following information:
    (a) name and address of the applicant;
    (b) name and address of all parties with any financial interest in the property to be insured and the nature and extent of such interest, including mortgages;
    (c) all purchases and sales of the property to be insured during the last five years, including all parties involved in such transactions, with their names and addresses;
    (d) the value the insured claims for the insurable interest and the method utilized to derive that value;
    (e) all income from the property to be insured during the current year and the last calendar and tax years, if known;
    (f) occupancy and use during the preceding two years, including percentage of occupancy if a nonowner occupied dwelling, if known;
    (g) prior loss history of the applicant and the property to be insured;
    (h) all tax liens and other legal encumbrances affecting the property to be insured; and
    (i) all violations of building construction and maintenance ordinances concerning the property to be insured which have been cited in a legal notice from an ordinance enforcement authority and which violations have not been certified as remedied by the enforcement authority, and for which an enforcement action is pending.
    (4) Within 60 days of receipt of an application submitted pursuant to subsection (3), the Facility shall conduct an on-site inspection of the property to be insured so as to determine the nature of the risk presented and the availability of coverage by the Facility. Any policy or endorsement issued on an application submitted pursuant to subsection (3) may be cancelled by the Facility within 60 days of the issuance thereof.
