220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0132 Date of Change. If a contract for the sale of real property can be specifically enforced, equity regards as done that which ought to be done and considers the purchaser to be owner of the property upon execution of the contract. If a purchaser is required to bring a court action for specific performance and is successful, transfer of title is nevertheless considered to have occurred on the date the contract became enforceable, i.e., when it was signed. C 11/19/1980.
