Eviction Law during Covid-19

Michael successfully prosecuted and  completed the first Sheriff’s eviction of a tenant during the Covid-19 eviction moratorium in Chicago, Illinois. Since then, Michael has continued to successfully evict tenants who pose a danger to other tenants or the property itself.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted Landlords, Building Owners and Management Companies in unprecedented ways.  MJNlawoffices.com has kept its clients informed on a weekly basis of the rapidly changing rules, laws and ordinances directly effecting our Landlord, Building Owner and Management Company clients.

Governor Pritzker has continued to extend the eviction moratorium on  a month to month basis. The Governor’s Order prohibits landlords from “initiating” an eviction proceeding during the moratorium period as extended.  Governor Pritzker’s Orders can be found at https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/resources-for-executive-orders.

Practically every day there are new rules and procedures required of Landlords and I am dedicated to making sure my clients are as up to date and informed as possible.
