You should consult an attorney regarding your question. I am not an attorney and the following is not legal advise. Consult an attorney so your situation and goals can properly assessed.
Your situation will dictate what is best.
In the many transactions in which I have completed, the purchase was possible, but the property could not be sold without a TIN. This has consequences regarding the method you may choose to purchase.
Again, you need to have a real time discussion with a professional IN CHICAGO.
Best of success to you,
