I am a landlord of a building in Naperville Illinois, DuPage

Customer Question

I am a landlord of a building in Naperville Illinois, DuPage county I have a tenant that has a present lease that ends July 31st, 2015. He has been unemployed and late with his payments for six months. He recently was arrested and charged with two felony charges in DuPage county, Illinois and is awaiting trail on the charges, while being incarcerated. He has order of protection filed against him that resides in the building. What options do I have as a landlord to get him out of the building prior to the end of the lease, or at the end of the lease, if the issue at hand is not resolved. What options do I have to remove his belongings and prepare the apartment for rental. Please respond, thank you
