Evictions: Service

Non-Payment of Rent

If a tenant fails to pay rent when it is due, the landlord can serve the tenant with a 5-day notice. This document officially notifies the tenant that they must pay their debt in full within five days of the date of service, or the landlord will terminate the lease and file a court action to evict the tenant. Whether you are a landlord having difficulty collecting rent or a tenant having trouble paying rent, contact us for assistance.

Lease Violation

There are many ways a tenant can violate their lease, all of which can cause stress and financial loss for the parties involved. When a tenant violates the terms of their lease the landlord can serve the tenant with a 10-day notice requiring the tenant to vacate the property within 10 days or face an eviction case. If your tenant has violated your lease or you have received a 10 day notice from your landlord, contact Davis-Sanders Law today for assistance.


Illinois law requires landlords to provide a minimum 30-day notice of termination to tenants when the landlord does not wish to renew the tenant's lease. Chicago has recently enacted further notice requirements depending on the length of tenancy. Contact us to ensure compliance with the notice standards relevant in your case.
