(735 ILCS 5/9-318) (from Ch. 110, par. 9-318)
    Sec. 9-318. Abandonment of premises. When a tenant abandons or removes from the premises or any part thereof, the landlord or his or her agent or attorney may seize upon any grain or other crops grown or growing upon the premises or part thereof so abandoned, whether the rent is due or not. If such grain or other crops or any part thereof is not fully grown or matured, the landlord or his or her agent or attorney shall cause the same to be properly cultivated and harvested or gathered, and may sell and dispose of the same, and apply the proceeds, so far as may be necessary, to compensate for his or her labor and expenses, and to pay the rent. The tenant may, at any time before the sale of the property so seized, redeem the same by tendering the rent due and the reasonable compensation and expenses of the cultivation and harvesting or gathering the same, or the tenant may replevy the property seized.
