Case law of mortgage and/or note may be used to establish motion to partition?

Chicago, IL |

How do I know if I can file a complaint to partition a property? I am on the mortgage, the note, but I Quit Claimed the Title/Deed to the property. The Quit Claim is not valid, was not recorded, as it does not have the property pin or property description, just property address.

Additionally, I signed a "person to person" contract that says I transfer my property interest to another individual. Since I am on the responsibility of note and mortgage loan, can I argue I still have an interest to sell the property? I want to locate any Illinois Case Law that will establish IF I can proceed or if this will be rejected. Do you know any cases by exact example of this??

A real estate attorney should be able to review your documents and advise you on the benefits and pitfalls of pursuing a partition claim, and advise on whether you are able to bring a partition claim at all.
