Need to sell your house in Chicago because you’re sick and tired of not getting paid each month? We get it. Sure, the first few months of the 2020 pandemic were complete and utter chaos. People became ill. Unemployment soared. Many businesses were forced to shut down. The economy–and our lives–were turned completely upside down. And nobody had the perfect solution.
Then the government stepped in and, on top of receiving a stimulus check, millions of individuals began receiving weekly payments. Often in number$ that went above and beyond what they were earning when they actually went to work. It’s understandable how someone wouldn’t be able to pay their rent. For a while. But that while turned into months which turned into a year! And here we are, years later, and your tenants are most likely working again (and have been for a while!). Or they are still collecting unemployment. Or both. AND THEY STILL REFUSE TO PAY THEIR RENT.
Why It’s Even More Urgent To Sell Your Chicago Home Now
Forbearance Period Ending
Extended Rent Moratoriums
Tenants Disrupting Neighbors
Tenants Violating Rules
Evicting a tenant is not something anyone sets out to do. You screened them. Did a background report and credit check. Called previous landlord references to verify this person was who they claimed they were. You did your job, decided to trust this person, allowed them into your home and gave them a safe place to rest their head at night. So, the fact that they won’t pay rent (even though they may very well be able to afford it) feels like a total slap in the face.
Evictions have been paused for over a year now. Just because your mortgage forbearance agreement might have ended, it doesn’t mean you will be able to immediately evict your tenant. Under normal circumstances, eviction can take anywhere from several weeks to a few months. With the courts still getting caught up, and so many previous eviction cases on deck from before the shutdown, it is, unfortunately, unlikely that your eviction will be finalized anytime in the near future.
