MUNI CD-RUN DOWN BLDG-LIEN                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Municipal Code.  Provides that a municipality      
   shall not proceed with demolition, repair, enclosure, or clean up of a      
   building if any person with a  legal  or  equitable  interest  in  the      
   property  has sought a court hearing.  Provides that any person with a      
   current legal or equitable interest in the property may file with  the      
   court an objection to a municipality's proposed action concerning the       
   dangerous or abandoned building.  Provides that a municipality's  lien      
   for  abandoned  building  costs  is superior to existing liens, except      
   taxes, if the municipality files a notice  of  lien  within  180  days      
   after incurring the costs.                                                  
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes the amendatory provisions restricting objections  to  and      
   hearings on a municipality's proposed actions concerning dangerous or       
   abandoned buildings to persons with a legal or equitable  interest  in      
   the property.                                                               
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides  that   before   removing   hazardous   buildings,   the      
   municipality  must  mail  to interested parties and record a Notice to      
   Remediate.  Provides if recorded or registered within 180  days  after      
   the  repair, demolition, enclosure, or removal, the municipal lien has      
   priority over the interests of those parties named in  the  Notice  to      
   Remediate,  but  not  over  the interests of third party purchasers or      
   encumbrancers for value who obtained their interests in  the  property      
   before obtaining actual or constructive notice of the lien.
