Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. In provisions concerning leased premises used in furtherance of a criminal offense, provides that a written lease shall contain language that the commission of any act by the lessee, occupant, household member of the lessee or occupant, or guest of the lessee or occupant that would constitute a felony or Class A misdemeanor shall give the owner or lessor the right to void the lease and recover possession of the leased premises. Provides that under specified circumstances, an owner or lessor may assign to the State's Attorney of the county or the corporation counsel of the municipality in which the property is located (instead of the State's Attorney) the right to bring a forcible entry and detainer action on behalf of the owner or lessor. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
735 ILCS 5/9-210from Ch. 110, par. 9-210

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Further amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that a written lease shall state that if the lessee or occupant permits the use of the leased premises for the commission of any act that would constitute a felony or Class A misdemeanor and the lessor has received written notification from a law enforcement agency of the use of the leased premises for the commission of an act that would constitute a felony or Class A misdemeanor, then the lessor has the right to terminate (instead of void) the lease; and adds, in forcible entry and detainer provisions concerning a notice to quit when there is a default as to a term in a lease, that it is not necessary to give more than 5 days' notice if the lessor is also providing notice of termination because the premises were used in a felony or Class A misdemeanor. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
