Wheaton Commercial and Residential Eviction Attorney

Representing Illinois Landlords and Commercial Tenants

When it comes to eviction procedures, the laws in Illinois are extremely complex. Whether you are a commercial or residential landlord seeking to evict a tenant, or a commercial tenant served with a notice of eviction, it is important to have an attorney on your side with a firm understanding of the applicable laws.

At the Law Office of Andrew M. Carter, we understand the laws governing evictions, because we have worked in this area of the law for over 30 years. We represent commercial and residential landlords and commercial tenants in the Wheaton area.

Assistance to Landlords in Commercial and Residential Evictions

In Illinois, eviction procedures are governed by the Illinois Forcible Entry and Detainer Act. A landlord who is not well-versed in this law could easily miss important legal requirements and lose any rights they may be able to enforce under this law. Our attorney — Andrew M. Carter — is very familiar with this act, and helps his clients avoid it's common pitfalls.

We help clients with the following eviction related matters:

  • Reviewing the lease and determining if, in fact, there has been a default or breach on the part of the tenant
  • Serving proper notice of eviction on the defaulting party
  • After expiration of the notice of eviction passes, preparing a formal eviction complaint and summons
  • Taking the case to trial if the case cannot be settled outside of court

Beyond eviction procedures, we also assist our clients with other landlord-tenant disputes, including:

  • Broken leases
  • Subleases
  • Violations of housing codes
  • Security deposits
  • Failure to pay rent
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Lack of notice

Defense for Commercial Tenants in Eviction Disputes

We defend commercial tenants facing eviction. We are able to utilize our experience on both sides of these disputes to give our clients a clear advantage in negotiations and trial proceedings. In eviction cases, we will determine whether the landlord provided a proper notice of eviction and review the lease closely to determine if the landlord violated any of it's terms.
