The City of Chicago (City), acting through the Department of Planning and Development (DPD), is committed to providing accurate information to the citizens of Chicago concerning the City’s real estate inventory based on the City’s land inventory system (LIS) database. However, the City does not guarantee the accuracy, reliability or completeness of the information set forth in the LIS database, including, without limitation, the tax parcel identication number, ownership, ward, street address, zip code and lot dimension information set forth therein, or whether a given parcel is currently being held or reserved for a contemplated City project. In addition, the City updates the LIS database on almost a daily basis, so any information is subject to change, and the City reserves the right to change any information without prior notice. The City also reserves the right to hold and release properties for contemplated City projects as the City, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate.
Information provided in the LIS database, or on the City’s website generally, should not be used as a substitute for title research, title evidence, title insurance, real estate tax exemption or payment status, environmental or geotechnical due diligence, or as a substitute for legal, accounting, real estate, business, tax or other professional advice. The City assumes no liability for any damages or loss of any kind that might arise from the reliance upon, use of, misuse of, or the inability to use the LIS database or the City’s web site and the materials contained on the website. The City also assumes no liability for improper or incorrect use of materials or information contained on its website. All materials that appear in the LIS database or on the City’s web site are distributed and transmitted "as is," without warranties of any kind, either express or implied as to the accuracy, reliability or completeness of any information, and subject to the terms and conditions stated in this disclaimer.
