Hi: I'm in a similar situation, I just closed on a HUD property and they did not provide a copy of the Plat Survey....will need one by the end of November 2013.

Thank you,

There are a couple of ways to get a plat of survey. When you purchased the property it had to be surveyed and at closing time a copy of that survey would have been given to you. Alternatively, you can hire a surveyor to survey your property.

If you never got a plat, which you should have at the time of purchase at the closing table, but now that you do not have one, you will have to hire a surveyor, and there are many in the city of Chicago, pay the fee and they will survey the lot and provide you with a new plat survey....

Good Luck
Hope this helps

You can call a survey company. They average about $500.
