New Amendment: Illinois Landlord & Tenant Act

intheloanlooplogo1

 Effective January 1, 2012 

For A and N Realtors, Investors, and Landlords:
An amendment has recently passed to the Illinois Landlord and Tenant Act which creates a new Section 765 ILCS705/15 “Changing or rekeying of the dwelling unit lock.” This New law requires most Cook County Landlords to change locks with every new tenant.

If the landlord does not comply with this new rule, which will take effect January 1, 2012, then that landlord may be liable to the tenant for damages sustained because of stolen property by someone with the old tenants’ key.
