On Wednesday, July 22, 2020, Illinois Governor Pritzker announced that he will extend the moratorium on evictions in the state until August 22, 2020.
Finally, landlords must be aware that the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security ActÂ (“CARES Act”) also provides further protection to subsidized tenants by requiring that landlords serve a 30 days notice, rather than a 5 days notice for non-payment of rent. Therefore, for properties with federally backed loans or those that receive federal assistance (ex. Section 8 voucher programs), the earliest an eviction could be filed would be September 21, 2020.
