Eviction Moratorium Extended to April 3, New Change Added for Evictions
EVICTION MORATORIUM EXTENDED UNTIL APRIL 3, NEW CHANGE ADDED FOR EVICTIONS
On Friday, March 5, Governor Pritzker extended the eviction moratorium to April 3. A new addition to eviction procedures was also added: if, after the filing of an eviction action, a tenant delivers an Illinois Tenant Declaration to the landlord, the landlord may only continue with the eviction if the tenant:
- Poses a direct threat to the health and safety of other tenants, or
- Is an immediate and severe risk to the property.
This clarification allows emergency evictions to continue even if a tenant is a “covered person” under the executive order. Find out more here.
