As of October 4, 2021, the state-wide eviction moratorium in Illinois has expired and very few additional requirements remain in place. Our law firm expects that the courts will be entering eviction orders and the Sheriff will be enforcing those orders in their normal course of business.

However, the Sheriff may be performing evictions in chronological order by the date that the eviction order entered with the court. Accordingly, earlier orders may be enforced before orders entered at a later date.

Landlords must also be aware that:

  • In limited circumstances, the Chicago COVID-19 Tenant Impact Ordinance requires a 7-day negotiation period after service of the 5-day notice.
  • The Coronavirus Economic Stabilization Act (CARES Act) requires a special 5-day notice form for properties with federally-backed mortgages.


Legal Resource

KSN attorneys are familiar with the latest laws and regulations to avoid technical defects that could otherwise result in possible dismissal of your eviction cases.

We will work quickly and efficiently with landlords and rental property managers to prepare your termination notices, file your cases, and secure eviction orders.

If you are unsure as to the issue of being a federally insured mortgage, our law firm can obtain a title search of the property to:

  • Verify that the property is not insured by a federally backed mortgage.
  • Ensure you may proceed with an eviction action.


Our attorneys are available to discuss evictions, our retainer program, how the CARES Act impacts your property, or other legal concerns. KSN can be reached by calling 855-537-0500 or by visiting
