Paula Lingo, chief legal advisor at the Cook County Recorder of Deeds Office in Illinois, has seen her share of mortgage and deed fraud in the past few years and, along with other recorders across the country, is seeking new methods of verifying the validity of documents coming through her office.

Lingo also emphasized that employees in her office look over the documents to make sure the essential elements are there, but the office has no police power, so employees have no way of verifying, overseeing or going beyond the recorded pages of the document to affirm that the information in the document is correct and the deed is not fraudulent.
Lingo said that the Cook County Recorder of Deeds was instrumental in having legislation passed in Illinois that requires a quit claim deed notification card to go out to the last owner of record whenever a quit claim deed is filed.
Lingo said that the Cook County Recorder of Deeds was instrumental in getting similar legislation passed in Illinois and hopes the new law will help eliminate some of the fraud. [cached]

The Council found Paula M. Lingo, chief legal counsel to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds, not qualified. The Council noted that Lingo, a lawyer since 1977, "had virtually no courtroom experience" during her 30 years of practice.

"By all accounts, she is competent in her current position and is well-liked and respected by lawyers who have encountered her in her administrative role," the Council said in its report. "But a lawyer who aspires to the bench should not be a stranger to the courts."
Lingo said on Wednesday that she does have extensive litigation experience, having worked on quasi-judicial adversarial evidentiary hearings with the Social Security Administration and as a labor attorney with International Harvester Co.
Lingo acknowledged that her litigation experience occurred in the late 1980s. "But at the same time, it's litigation experience," she added. [cached]
