Illinois 5-Day Notice to Quit Form | Unlawful Activity

Updated July 17, 2023

An Illinois 5-Day Notice to Quit (Unlawful Activity) is a form used when a landlord finds direct evidence of unlawful activity taking place on or around their tenant’s dwelling unit. Illegal activities such as the involvement of illegal drugs, firearms, murder, or sexual assault within or upon the premises will give the landlord the ability to issue a 5-day notice to quit to the tenant named in the complaint.

Unlike most notices to quit, this notice does not allow the tenant to remedy the breach, therefore, the tenant must move out of the premises no later than five (5) days. The tenant can challenge the landlord and if that’s the case, a hearing of the complaint can be scheduled after 14 days of notice. If the defendant does not appear at the hearing, judgment for possession shall be given immediately to the plaintiff (in this case the plaintiff would be the landlord/owner).
