Opening Doors For You
Koch & Associates in Cicero, Illinois, represents clients from throughout the Chicago area in real estate matters. From closings and transactions, to short sales and loan modifications, our firm can provide you with the representation you need.
We’re Not Satisfied Until You Are
As a firm, we treat the law as more than just another job. For us, it is our vocation.
Our firm’s founding attorney, in fact, is himself a fifth-generation attorney in his family. He understands that being an attorney means providing you with the kind of guidance you need for sensitive, personal, real life issues.
When you work with us, you are working with a firm that understands real estate issues. Attorney Koch used to represent the banks and now he puts that knowledge to work for our firm’s clients. In addition, he is also a licensed realtor himself.
For that reason, you can turn to our firm’s lawyers for help in a broad range of real estate matters, including:
If you are financially distressed, you can also depend on our firm to provide with a comprehensive range of options. Our firm maintains a vigorous practice involving financial distress, including bankruptcy, foreclosure defense and debt negotiation.
We also provide you with the benefit of being able to speak your own language with your attorney if Spanish is your first language. When your home may be at stake, we know you want to speak directly with your attorney, not through a translator.
Helping You With Your Real Estate Related Wills And Probate Needs
You can also depend on us if you own a one to four unit residence and want an easy and hassle free way of securing the real property in your estate.
Creating wills and going through a probate process can be time consuming and expensive. Imagine the hassle your loved ones would have to go through to inherit the property you left for them at the time of your passing.
The good news is that there’s a cheaper and easier way to avoid a probate process or executing a deed in the name of your loved ones for the real property you own in Illinois. Illinois joined many other states and enforced the Illinois Residential Real Property Transfer on Death Instrument Act.
What this allows real estate owners in Illinois to do is prerecord an instrument declaring who of their loved ones will be receiving the property upon their passing. A Transfer on Death Instrument is not a deed, so you may maintain the security of being the owner of your property, and having the peace of mind that your loved ones will be able to obtain ownership in the future.
