Eviction - Chicago, IL

Asked by Lndlrd, Chicago, IL Fri Sep 28, 2012

I'm looking for an attorney who can process an eviction in Chicago, IL. I have a tenant who has decided not to pay rent anymore. Does anyone know the steps or timeline involved for evicting someone? Additionally, what is the typical cost? Any websites and or attorney recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Careful, produce the late notice quickly, and hire an experienced eviction attorney immediately.
Hopefully the tenants will realize that being evicted once will make it very difficult for them to rent
in the future....

I would happy to help you. I have represented both tenants and landlords in evictions. If you follow the proper procedures, it will take 2-3 months from the day you serve the 5 day notice of failure to pay rent

The key to reducing losses is to get the late notice in their hands the day they are late. Takes about two months I have found. Make sure you have an attorney that has done city if Chicago before. Not the same rules as cook co. It is shame. People dissapoint us sometimes. I would get advice from an attorney and try the notice. I have had people just leave on their own to avoid eviction once they knew you meant business. With the eviction and or court filing they will have a very hard time renting again. Good luck.
