Evictions Are Hard Work
If you own a residential rental property, one of the more challenging prospects on your plate is the possibility or necessity of evicting a tenant. Illinois law on residential evictions is clear, but many people make costly mistakes without guidance. You want the attention of attorneys with experience in these matters and a commitment to confidentiality.

Understanding Illinois Eviction Law
To evict a tenant in Illinois, you must follow the steps as laid down by the state government. First, you must have a cause to end the tenancy, which can be:
- Violation of lease agreement
- Criminal activity
- Refusal to pay rent
Once you have a cause to remove a tenant, you must provide them with the appropriate notice of the end of their lease. Depending on the eviction, you may have to use a different note.
Serving a notice to the tenant is not the final step. You will have to go to court and make a case to evict them. Even then, there is a chance you may not be successful, but as long as you are working according to Illinois law, you have a strong chance.
