ALTA Plans Habitat Home In Chicago

The American Land Title Association will partner with the Windy City Habitat for Humanity Chapter and sponsor a home within the city of Chicago to help celebrate the title trade group's 100th Anniversary.

Attendees at the ALTA annual convention, October 10-13 in Chicago and ALTA staff will be asked to volunteer their skills or work to help complete the home.

WCHFH anticipates breaking ground in June, so that by October "inside" volunteer work can be done. ALTA told its members that the event is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community and to leave a lasting tribute to the city where the group's first convention was held.

It will take approximately 10 months to complete the home. A large part depends on the family and how they are doing on their sweat equity hours. Also, ALTA will build a two story house, which is not the norm for Habitat homes. (c) 2007 Mortgage Servicing News and SourceMedia, Inc.
