NHS Redevelopment Corporation Liens Available

NHS Redevelopment Corporation (NHSRC) focuses on redeveloping properties, repairing properties, and addressing blight in Chicago. We serve as a “Receiver” for the Cook County Court, by overseeing court-ordered repairs intended to protect communities and properties.

*The information below is posted to assist community-minded property developers and investors. It is not intended for situations where a property owner lives in the property. If you own and live in a property and believe NHSRC holds a lien on your home, please contact NHSRC at or 773 329-4111 for NHS to guide you through your options.

The dashboard below shows properties which NHSRC holds an active receiver’s lien. These liens are the result of building repair costs and other activities performed under Cook County Housing court-appointed receivership as part of the City of Chicago’s Troubled Buildings Initiative program. NHSRC DOES NOT OWN these properties and cannot sell them to anyone. Purchasers of these liens obtain all the rights and interests of the lien holder against the property.

Why might you be interested in these liens?

  • If you are the property owner, you may wish to address these liens against your property through payment (lien payoff) or an agreement with NHSRC in order to clear title.
  • If you are acquiring a property and find a lien against it, addressing the lien will be necessary to clear the title to the property and complete the sale.
  • If you are interested in acquiring the property, the lien can be acquired, assigned, and then foreclosed upon to obtain title to the property.

Use the maps below to identify the liens that you are interested in acquiring. Then, review the lien options and next steps.

*This map does not show properties where the property owner resides in the property.
