Naperville commercial litigation attorneysMost commercial tenant-landlord relationships are fairly uneventful. However, there are circumstances in which a landlord must evict their commercial tenant. Generally due to a breach of contract or failure to pay rent in a timely manner, this process can be legally complex. Whatever side you fall on – landlord or tenant – it is important to know how commercial real estate evictions in Illinois work, and how an experienced commercial real estate attorney can help you with the process.

Commercial Evictions Are Governed by Law

When tenants and landlords enter into a commercial rental agreement, they typically do so through a legal contract. Contained within are certain guidelines, agreements, and expectations for property use, rental payments, property maintenance, and any other pertinent details. If a tenant violates any part of this contract, they become subject to an eviction. Landlords must pursue this process in accordance with the law. Specifically, commercial evictions are governed by the Forcible Entry and Detainer Act (735 ILCS 5/9-101), which outlines a timeline and procedure for evicting commercial tenants.
