Don't Be Duped
Lake County Recorder of Deeds, Mary Ellen Vanderventer is warning residents there are companies contacting Lake County homeowners in an effort to provide you with a certified copy of the deed to your home for an outrageous payment of $87.00.

You don't need to pay a company for this service. All requests for copies of deeds should be handled directly through the Recorder's office.  The average deed is four pages or less, with a copy fee of only $1 per page.

I would encourage anyone with a question, concern or need for a copy to contact the office directly at  (847) 377-2575 .

They will be happy to send you whatever paperwork you need, at the statutory cost, without any handling or postage fees.

There may come a time when you do need to reference the deed to your home. As often happens, people misplace their deeds or in some instances, never actually received the original deed at the time they purchased their home. Please contact the office directly.
Time Change on November 4
Daylight saving time ends November, 4 when  clocks  are  moved back  an hour at 2 a.m. local daylight time.

Have you changed your smoke detector batteries?
  • Clean, vacuum, and test smoke alarms regularly.
  • Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm at least twice a year and as soon as the alarm “chirps” warning that the battery is low. Special Note: With the introduction of ten-year lithium batteries available for use in smoke alarms, replacement is not needed on a semi-annual basis; however, monthly cleaning and testing remains an important safety measure.
  • Replace your smoke alarm every ten years.
  • Don’t disable smoke alarms, even temporarily.
