Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

Notice shall state the proposed date of closing and the reason for closing. The facility shall submit a closure plan to the Department for approval which shall address the process for the safe and orderly transfer of residents. The approved plan shall be included in the notice. The facility shall offer to assist the resident in securing an alternative placement and shall advise the resident on available alternatives.

A facility closing in its entirety shall not admit any new residents on or after the date written notice is submitted to the Department under this Section. The facility shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations until the date of closing, including those related to transfer or discharge of residents.

assure safety and adequate health care for the residents.
        (c) Shall have the same rights to possession of the
    
building in which the facility is located and of all goods and fixtures in the building at the time the petition for receivership is filed as the owner would have had if the receiver had not been appointed, and of all assets of the facility.

        (d) May use the building, fixtures, furnishings and
    
any accompanying consumable goods in the provision of care and services to residents and to any other persons receiving services from the facility at the time the petition for receivership was filed.

        (e) May correct or eliminate any deficiency in the
    
structure or furnishings of the facility which endangers the safety or health of residents while they remain in the facility, provided the total cost of correction does not exceed $3,000. The court may order expenditures for this purpose in excess of $3,000 on application from the receiver after notice to the owner and hearing.
        (f) May let contracts and hire agents and employees
    
to carry out the powers and duties of the receiver under this Section.
        (g) Except as specified in Section 3-510, shall honor
    
all leases, mortgages and secured transactions governing the building in which the facility is located and all goods and fixtures in the building of which the receiver has taken possession, but only to the extent of payments which, in the case of a rental agreement, are for the use of the property during the period of the receivership, or which, in the case of a purchase agreement, come due during the period of the receivership.
        (h) Shall have full power to direct and manage and to
    
discharge employees of the facility, subject to any contract rights they may have. The receiver shall pay employees at the same rate of compensation, including benefits, that the employees would have received from the owner. Receivership does not relieve the owner of any obligation to employees not carried out by the receiver.
        (i) Shall, if any resident is transferred or
    
discharged, follow the procedures set forth in Part 4 of this Article.
        (j) Shall be entitled to and shall take possession of
    
all property or assets of residents which are in the possession of a facility or its owner. The receiver shall preserve all property, assets and records of residents of which the receiver takes possession and shall provide for the prompt transfer of the property, assets and records to the new placement of any transferred resident.
        (k) Shall report to the court on any actions he has
    
taken to bring the facility into compliance with this Act or with Title XVIII or XIX of the Social Security Act that he believes should be continued when the receivership is terminated in order to protect the health, safety or welfare of the residents.

    Sec. 3-509. (a) A person who is served with notice of an order of the court appointing a receiver and of the receiver's name and address shall be liable to pay the receiver for any goods or services provided by the receiver after the date of the order if the person would have been liable for the goods or services as supplied by the owner. The receiver shall give a receipt for each payment and shall keep a copy of each receipt on file.

    (b) The receiver may bring an action to enforce the liability created by subsection (a) of this Section.

210 ILCS 45/3-510

    (210 ILCS 45/3-510) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-510)
    Sec. 3-510. (a) A receiver may petition the court that he not be required to honor any lease, mortgage, secured transaction or other wholly or partially executory contract entered into by the owner of the facility if the rent, price or rate of interest required to be paid under the agreement was substantially in excess of a reasonable rent, price or rate of interest at the time the contract was entered into, or if any material provision of the agreement was unreasonable.
    (b) If the receiver is in possession of real estate or goods subject to a lease, mortgage or security interest which the receiver has obtained a court order to avoid under subsection (a) of this Section, and if the real estate or goods are necessary for the continued operation of the facility under this Section, the receiver may apply to the court to set a reasonable rental, price or rate of interest to be paid by the receiver during the duration of the receivership. The court shall hold a hearing on the application within 15 days. The receiver shall send notice of the application to any known persons who own the property involved at least 10 days prior to the hearing. Payment by the receiver of the amount determined by the court to be reasonable is a defense to any action against the receiver for payment or for possession of the goods or real estate subject to the lease, security interest or mortgage involved by any person who received such notice, but the payment does not relieve the owner of the facility of any liability for the difference between the amount paid by the receiver and the amount due under the original lease, security interest or mortgage involved.

    Sec. 3-511. If funds collected under Sections 3-508 and 3-509 are insufficient to meet the expenses of performing the powers and duties conferred on the receiver or the monitor, or if there are insufficient funds on hand to meet those expenses, the Department may reimburse the receiver or the monitor for those expenses from funds appropriated for its ordinary and contingent expenses by the General Assembly after funds contained in the Long Term Care Monitor/Receiver Fund, not allocated for the costs associated with hiring and maintaining of surveyors, have been exhausted.
