Hi All, 

I have been an accidental landlord for about a year. I ended up moving to another state and couldn't sell in time. The house is location in Oak Brook, IL.

In the end I went ahead and leased out the property. 

Anyhow, it has already been a year and there is 1 year left. 

The tenant has caused many issues such as:

1. many mold issues by not properly utilizing an taking care of an indoor pool room. (I have spend a lot of money over the last month or so fixing on remediation of the mold) 
2. there is a bylaw of the area is not to have trailers parked on any property and he has repeatedly brought his trailer and been fined several times (7 times) 

None of the fines have been paid and he has skipped 2 court dates and seems to have plenty of excuses. 

3. He cannot afford the water bill due to excess water usage and is barely able to cover the payment plan he has setup with the city. 

If he does not pay the fines for the trailer - this will cause a lien on my property. 

If this happens can I get this guy evicted?

How difficult would this be? 

He is not following the swimming pool guide lines that were set out in the lease agreement (or there would be no constant mold issues.) 

Any advise would be greatly appreciated on what can be done in this situation. I am unsure how hard it could be the evict someone who is cause liens on the property due to city laws being violated. 

Thank you

would it be difficult to evict under these circumstances? how long could it take? i have heard that IL favors the tenant. Not sure if it counts the same if they breach the lease? 

thank you

first you need to give them a few 3 day notice right to cure.
1. move trailer and keep off property.   2. 3 day to pay fines from trailer.  3. 3 day to pay water bill

if not done file eviction

Thanks all, one thing I would like to add id that this guy has put in new hardwood flooring and perhaps other upgrades without permission. As soon as we found out (during an inspection last Christmas time) we told him to stop this and not to do anything more unless he asks permission, 

He did these upgrades under the pretense of "purchasing the property at a later date"

if he did upgrades  cool, your place is better, provided it was done correct. if not tat is a charge to him to repair. it is not an offset on what he owes
