Landlords may decide to evict tenants for an array of reasons. In some cases, these evictions are financial in nature, while others may be based on a tenant's behavior. If you are involved in a dispute with your tenant and wish to evict them for disturbing the peace, it is important for you to carefully assess the details of the situation as you move forward. At Bradford Miller Law, we know how difficult these circumstances can be for landlords in Chicago and across Illinois.
There are many things that must be disclosed when selling a home in Illinois, but is the presence of a ghost or other spirit one of them? This may be a question asked often in real estate transactions because many people believe their home is haunted. Some people even move due to activity in a home. However, on the other hand, there are also many people who do not believe in such phenomena, so buying a “haunted house” would not bother them.
If you're trying to sell your home, a few quick and relatively inexpensive improvements can help you sell your home faster, while potentially putting tens of thousands of extra dollars in your pocket.
There are different reasons why landlords have to move forward with an eviction. In Chicago, and in cities all over the state of Illinois, tenants may fail to pay rent, create a nuisance for others, or damage the property, to name but a few of the hurdles landlords may encounter. However, landlords should not have to feel hopeless and allow tenants to continuously violate the terms of the rental agreement. For landlords going through these challenges, eviction may help them move on quickly.
As an Illinois property owner, you likely strive to make your rental properties as comfortable, inviting and accommodating as possible for your tenants. Even the most careful property owner can sometimes unknowingly commit building code violations, however, and understanding some of the more common violations may help you recognize and address related problems before you find yourself in hot water. At Bradford Miller Law PC, we represent many clients involved in building code violation disputes, and we have considerable knowledge of what it takes to stay in or regain compliance.
