The Lake County Sheriff Mistreats Landlords By Deliberately Violating the Law

Serving Waukegan, Libertyville, Lake County, Gurnee & nearby areas of Illinois

In a quest for positive press coverage, our sheriff's office continues to ignore its responsibilities. Judges must follow the law when entering orders determining when someone must leave a property when they fail to pay what they owe. The sheriff has no right to disregard a court order or disregard a judge's determination of when someone must leave. Although this holiday moratorium sounds like a feel good story, not every defendant in an eviction action resides in a property with their family. Delays in enforcing court orders are common place in Lake County, Illinois, regardless of the time of year. Our landlord clients unfairly lose thousands of dollars every year while the sheriff ignores their rights and fails to timely do their job.  https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/news/ct-lns-holiday-eviction-break-st-1211-story.html
