EVICTION-SERVICE OF NOTICE
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Forcible Entry and Detainer provisions of the Code of
Civil Procedure. Provides that the demand for possession of and rent
for the premises may be served, in addition to existing means, by
placing a copy of the demand notice within the rental unit. Allows the
lessor or his or her agent to provide reasonable notice rather than 10
days notice to quit if a crime is committed by the tenant or a person
under the tenant's control or if the health and safety of other
tenants or the lessor's employees is threatened. Changes the method of
verifying that service was made from a two tiered method, one for
officers and another for non-officers, to a provision that a signed
return, verified by certification by the server, is prima facie
evidence that service was obtained. Effective immediately.
FISCAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Ill. Courts)
