Serving the needs of lenders and loan servicers throughout Illinois, Codilis and Associates, P.C., handles a diverse range of real estate matters. The Codilis team organizes foreclosure actions and uses advanced strategies in managing the judicial foreclosure process.
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.
