Some towns have village inspections prior to closing to make sure the home is ready for occupancy. Like village of Romeoville has village inspections on all the foreclosed homes to make sure there is no safety and code violations like finished basements without permits.
You might want to call the village of Bolingbrook to make sure that there are no violations attached to the property as by advertising that the buyer is responsible for the village violation the banks is indicating that they are not going to fix or repair anything.

This is pretty standard language on corporate, bank or government owned properties. Some towns have village inspections prior to closing to ensure the home is ready for occupancy. The seller is probably just indicating that they have no intention to fix anything. This would be the buyer responsibility.

Also, if it is Romeoville, they are also looking for all work on the home to have a permit.
