I often read the long running Chicago Tribune real estate section question and answer series dealing with condo associations. I learned today an Illinois legislative act passed years ago to form an Ombudsperson office for condo association disputes has a couple important dates coming up. 

The state's Condominium and Community Interest Ombudsperson office was formed to educate the public and provide resources for condo associations. They may also field disputes and help resolve disputes between owners and condo associations when violations may have occurred. The act requires condo associations to have a written policy for association disputes by January 2019.
