Rental property ownership may involve serious legal concerns related to asset protection and estate planning.

Will County Circuit Court Residential Eviction Process

Residents of Plainfield, Joliet, and Shorewood reside in either Will County or Kendall County. In Will County, the landlord's attorney must file the eviction case where the rental property is located. Residential evictions occur in the Will County Circuit Court in Room 1002 of the Joliet Courthouse at 100 West Jefferson Street, Joliet, Illinois 60432.

The Will County Circuit Court has an efficient process for handling landlord concerns such as non-payment of rent. The first step in a residential eviction is to prepare an eviction notice and serve the tenant(s) with said notice. Generally, the most common notices are 5-day, 10-day and 30-day notices. In-person court appearances are required in Will County.

Kendall County Circuit Court Residential Eviction Process

Residents of Plainfield and Joliet who are located in Kendall County must bring their legal matters in the Kendall County Court System. The residential evictions are heard in Room 116 of the Kendall County Courthouse at 807 W. John Street, Yorkville, Illinois 60560. Unlike Will County, Zoom and in-person appearances are acceptable. The Kendall County Court System has an efficient court process.

Types of Eviction Notices for Plainfield and Joliet Rental Property Evictions for Landlords

5-Day Notice

The 5-day notice gives the tenant(s) five days to pay past-due rent. The 5-day notice will contain the tenant's name, their address, and the amount of rent due (among other details). The 5-day notice should state that partial rent payments will not be accepted (after the expiration of the 5-day period). The 5-day notice is the most common eviction notice, because non-payment issues are the primary concern of residential landlords.

10-day Notice

The 10-day notice informs the tenant(s) of a breach in the written terms of a residential lease. A breach in the written terms means that a default occurs when the tenant(s) violates at least one paragraph of the residential lease. The 10-day notice informs the tenant(s) of non-compliance with the terms of the rental lease agreement. Examples of 10-day notice violations include pet violations or crime concerns.

30-day Notice

The 30-day notice informs the tenant(s) of the termination of a month-to-month rental tenancy. Examples of month-to-month rental tenancies include written leases that have expired (and the tenants continue to reside at the property on a month-to-month basis until one party gives written notice to break the monthly rental tenancy). Oral leases entered into by family members, friends, or others are another example of a presumption of a month-to-month rental tenancy. To break the month-to-month rental tenancy, a 30-day eviction notice is required.

Service of Process Methods for Eviction Notices

There are two primary service of process methods for eviction cases. The first method is delivery by certified mail with return receipt (signature required). Certified mail is acceptable if the tenant(s) signs the certified mail notice. A certified mail notice is ineffective if at least one tenant fails to sign the notice. The second method of service of process is personal service. Personal service requires hand delivery of the eviction notice or notices. Posting an eviction notice on the door is unacceptable, and text messages or email communications are ineffective methods of service of process.

In summary, the residential eviction process in the Joliet, Plainfield, and Shorewood areas of Will County and Kendall County is a complex process. The process is simple for a professional, because the residential eviction laws are clear and straightforward. Landlord Evictions, LLC focuses on handling residential evictions in Will County, Kendall County, and the surrounding areas.
