    Chicago Sewer and Water Lien – The City of Chicago has no limitations on statute of limitations, on this type of municipal lien. You can attempt to negotiate a settlement your water account FPC.


    When a water or sewer bill becomes delinquent, those charges become a lien upon the real estate for which the service is supplied. That is the case even if the water or sewer service charge was incurred by a tenant. The notice of lien may then be filed in the recorder’s office.

    A release of lien will be issued by the City if the balance is zero. Payoff Letters are not needed and not issued if there is a Ready online FPC. Balance currently owed online Ready FPC serves as the payoff amount due.

    A good PDF reference on this subject, “Municipal Liens: Procedures for Filing, Perfecting, and Collecting” (2011), provides a good resource abstract on the types of Chicago Municipal liens encountered, including Chicago Water Liens.
