The firm also provides client assistance in cases where eviction actions related to foreclosure are undertaken. Codilis & Associates understands the complex and time-consuming nature of foreclosures, particularly when it comes to handling tenants.

In the state of Illinois, self-eviction, which involves the property owner making the tenant move out of the premises, is not legal. Residential eviction must start with a written notice delivered to the tenant, with a variety of eviction notice periods applying, depending on the lease duration and type.

Nonpayment of rent requires a five-day notice, while other situations, such as damage to premises and rental agreement noncompliance, require a 10-day notice. The tenant is given 10 days to take care of the noncompliance issue, or the premises must be vacated. In cases of a month-to-month lease, a 30-day written notice is required, and there is no need to provide the tenant with a reason for eviction.
