An Illinois lease termination letter (30-day notice) is a legal document that landlords use to notify their tenants who pay monthly or quarterly rent about the termination of their lease agreement.
It is essential to serve the notice at least 30 days before the termination date, and the tenant must vacate the premises within that timeframe. Failing to comply with the notice may result in the landlord initiating an eviction suit against the tenant.
The notice serves as an official document that provides both parties with a record of the date of the notice and the termination date of the lease agreement. It helps protect the landlord’s rights as well as the tenant’s rights, ensuring that both parties have a clear understanding of the legal process.
