(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
Violations; injunctions; cease and desist orders.
(a) If any person violates a provision of this Act, the Secretary may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, through the Attorney General of the State of Illinois, petition for an order enjoining the violation or for an order enforcing compliance with this Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition in court, the court may issue a temporary restraining order, without notice or bond, and may preliminarily and permanently enjoin the violation. If it is established that the person has violated or is violating the injunction, the Court may punish the offender for contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section are in addition to, and not in lieu of, all other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
(b) If any person, entity or other business may provide community association management services or provide services as community association manager to any community association in this State without having a valid license under this Act, then any licensee, any interested party or any person injured thereby may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief as provided in subsection (a) of this Section.
(c) Whenever in the opinion of the Department any person, entity or other business violates any provision of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order to cease and desist should not be entered against such person, firm or other entity. The rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and shall provide a period of at least 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer to the satisfaction of the Department. If the person, firm or other entity fails to file an answer satisfactory to the Department, the matter shall be considered as a default and the Department may cause an order to cease and desist to be issued immediately.
