At the Law Office of Robert B. Ramirez, our primary objective is always to expedite the eviction process for the client. We do this by making sure that the proper procedures are followed, so as to avoid any unnecessary delays.
Many times, Landlords that represent themselves in Court waste valuable time and expense by failing to use the proper Termination Notice form or failing to serve it in accordance with the statutory requirements. Common mistakes are also often made on the court pleadings and/or the eviction Order involving the proper party names or occupants named as defendants. Mistakes like these will usually result in the dismissal of your case and the unnecessary loss of valuable time and the costs associated with it, including the continued loss of rent, costs to re-file the case and costs re-serve the tenant.
Unfortunately, many tenants are all-too familiar with the court procedures from involvement in prior evictions or receiving pro bono advice and know how to “game” the system*. For these reasons, it is crucial that the landlord retain the services of a lawyer who is intimately familiar with the workings of the Lee County , Collier Charlotte County or Cook County Court system. We have been fighting and advocating exclusively on behalf of landlords for many years and can assist you in avoiding these type of delays.
The legal services we provide to Landlords include:
Reviewing the Lease and any other relevant documents, records & notices;
Preparing the appropriate Termination Notice (5-Day, 10-Day, 30-Day);
Ensuring that the Termination Notice is properly served, in accordance with current case law and statutory requirements;
Drafting the Complaint & Summons;
Filing the Complaint & Summons with the Clerk of the Court and Sheriff;
Ensuring that service of the Complaint & Summons have been completed by the Sheriff or, otherwise, taking the necessary steps to serve by a licensed Special Process Server or by Publication (Sheriff’s Posting);
Preparing for and attending Court hearings with all the necessary documents, notices and records; hyper-links to forms to be provided on website
Meeting with and negotiating a possible settlement with the tenant which would be beneficial to the Landlord in timing and/or limiting exposure to any potential liability.
In cases where settlement cannot be reached, preparing for Trial and obtaining an Order for Possession (i.e. Eviction Order) and money Judgment for unpaid rent and court costs;
Filing the Order for Possession with the Sheriff for enforcement;
*In certain cases in which the tenant attempts to prolong the eviction proceeding by requesting endless continuances or by the filing of a Jury Demand, we will routinely file a Motion for Use and Occupancy, in which case the Judge will order the tenant to pay rent during the pendency of the case. In many cases were the tenant willfully refuses to pay the Court-ordered rent, we are then able to have an Order for Possession entered as a sanction for the tenant’s violation of the Court Order.
If you are selling or purchasing real estate, either residential, multi-family or commercial, in Chicago or the suburban Cook County area, we can assist you in ensuring that your closing is handled efficiently and expeditiously.
We have personally represented buyers & sellers in real estate closings valued at over $300 Million throughout the past 34+ years. In many such transactions, even the most sophisticated seller or buyer can become overwhelmed with the amount of paperwork and the many requirements that are necessary to complete a closing in Illinois.
However, for a low flat-fee, we will guide you through this often complex process and deal with the other parties' brokers, attorneys, lenders, appraisers, inspectors and surveyors.
For Sellers, we can even prepare a Power of Attorney for you, so that you don't have to attend the closing. We will provide you with all the paperwork in advance of the closing for your review and we can even Wire the closing funds to your bank account.
Our low flat-fee rates include all of the customary legal services you would expect, but unlike many other law firms who do not concentrate in real estate, we can also provide you the best insights and advice that will make the process run smoothly and will maximize your net sales proceeds.
