One of the most awkward and frustrating things that a landlord has to do is evict a tenant.

When you are renting out your property, you give your tenant the legal right to assume control of the property during the lease period. Although this allows you to collect rent from tenants if things don't go smoothly, it can create a lot of problems for you. In this podcast, we invite industry experts to discuss how to get rid of bad tenants and what issues you may encounter when starting the eviction process. We understand that Chicago property owners may have a lot of questions for us, so we have discussed many common questions in detail below.
