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 5/3-203

    (625 ILCS 5/3-203) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-203)
    Sec. 3-203. Security interest. If an owner creates a security interest in a vehicle:
    (a) The owner shall immediately execute the application, in the space provided therefor on the certificate of title or on a separate form the Secretary of State prescribes, to name the lienholder on the certificate, showing the name and address of the lienholder and cause the certificate, application and the required fee to be delivered to the lienholder.
    (b) The lienholder shall immediately cause the certificate, application and the required fee to be mailed or delivered to the Secretary of State.
    (c) Upon request of the owner or subordinate lienholder, a lienholder in possession of the certificate of title shall either mail or deliver the certificate to the subordinate lienholder for delivery to the Secretary of State or, upon receipt from the subordinate lienholder of the owner's application and the required fee, mail or deliver them to the Secretary of State with the certificate. The delivery of the certificate does not affect the rights of the first lienholder under his security agreement.
    (d) Upon receipt of the certificate of title, application and the required fee, the Secretary of State shall issue a new certificate containing the name and address of the new lienholder, and mail the certificate to the first lienholder named in it.
