Illinois Governor Pat Quinn Signs Bill Extending Tenant Protections In Foreclosure

A federal law that protects renters whose buildings are in foreclosure will expire this year. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed a bill into law that would extend those protections for Illinois renters. 

Under the new law, renters are entitled to remain in their homes through the end of their leases. If the bank, receiver, or other entitity in control of the property will not renew the lease, notice must be given 90 days in advance of the lease's expiration. 

If the foreclosed property is sold to a third party that intends to make it a primary residence, then the renter is entitled to 90 days notice before the lease can be terminated. This bill extends the protections of the federal law with the same provisions. 

It is also another layer of protection for renters in Illinois -- Chicago passed the Keep Chicago Renting ordinance earlier this year, but this bill protects renters state-wide. The new law takes effect in 90 days.

Ahmad Sulaiman, Mohammed Badwan and their staff did an exceptional job and handled our case like true professionals. They made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process and were made available at any point should we have any question about our case.

When first facing foreclosure my family and I were in serious need of legal advice. I came across the Sulaiman Law Group on the internet and the outstanding reviews are what led us to finally make the call. Always having our best interest at heart, Mr. Sulaiman and his firm are very reliable, kind, and well educated.

My experience with this law firm is beyond amazing! When facing foreclosure my wife and I were very stressed and embarrassed and Sulaiman’s Law Group relieved us of all of our worries.

Atty. Sulaiman & his staff are very professional in all aspects & knowledgeable. My bankruptcy went smoothly. I intended to foreclose but one of the lawyers, Atty. Volheim, gave me advice that helped me save my house from foreclosure. These are very good people, I cannot say it enough.

Foreclosure defense might be very challenging and unpredictable, but one thing is for sure - Ahmad and his colleagues have the integrity and the knowledge to get the best results for you.

I found Mr. Sulaiman’s law firm on the internet while searching for a law firm to handle my bankruptcy case.

Finally, an attorney that truly understands the law. Everything from speaking to Omar to schedule the initial appointment through my meeting with Ahmad was an amazing experience.

Just wanted to let you know that I am very satisfied with the results achieved from Sulaiman Law Group in reference to Mortgage Modification and Attorney Fees re-imbursement.

My visit to the Sulaiman Law Office was so healthfully wholesome and literally therapeutic. I felt as if I had been to the top of Mount Everest, where I breathed fresh and pure air like a cool refreshing breeze at high noon in a long hot summer in Chicago.

After listening to my answers to his questions, without reluctance and hesitation, without a second thought, in a friendly, confident tone, he assured me that I am qualified for a Chapter 7!
