Illinois man, woman arrested for drug crimes

Illinois police recently arrested two people during the course of an investigation. The pair are both charged with drug crimes for unlawfully possessing methamphetamine and unlawfully possessing drug paraphernalia. One of the two -- a man -- had one other warrant out for his arrest at the time, and was also taken in for violating his probation.

Illinois man charged in fatal drunk driving accident

An Illinois man was recently indicted for his alleged role in a fatal pedestrian accident, although he is not yet in police custody. He is facing a single count for leaving the scene of a fatal accident and eight counts for aggravated drunk driving. His blood-alcohol content -- BAC -- was allegedly above the legal limit at the time of the wreck, which is why he is facing DUI charges.

Title defects can derail your real estate purchase

There are many different steps when it comes to buying a home or other piece of real estate, and at each step it is possible that something may go wrong. Problems with the title can be particularly upsetting. For example, title defects can make it difficult to establish legal ownership of a property.

Four common mortgage and real estate scams

One of, and maybe the last thing you want to happen as a consumer or investor, is to get scammed. To get robbed of your money or private information can send your finances down a rabbit hole. Real estate and mortgage scams are also not on the top of the list of worries for those families or individuals looking to invest in their future.

False positive drug tests increase with shifting cannabis laws

Scientists say routine drug testing can easily confuse two substances found in cannabis, one that is legal and one that isn't in most states. The mistaken results have potentially disastrous consequences for people who test positive for the presence of THC.

Handling evictions according to residential real estate law

The average landlord in Illinois already has a lot on his or her plate. Because of this, it can be very frustrating to deal with problems from tenants, such as frequently being late on rent. When these types of problems progress, it is sometimes necessary to move forward with eviction. Landlords must be aware of the proper procedure for doing so. Otherwise, they could unintentionally violate residential real estate law.

Protecting your interests in commercial real estate transactions

When you bought your house, maybe you were envisioning a long-term home where you would raise a family. Or perhaps you made the purchase as a financial investment. Regardless of your intentions, your house or property is probably one of your biggest assets, if not the biggest. It is essential that you protect that investment when dealing with commercial real estate actions in Illinois, such as taking your house to market.

Many Americans are unconcerned about driving while high

At least one of the charges is a class X for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. This type of felony is the most serious offense in the state of Illinois.
