Customer Question

I am a renter in a suburb in Illinois. My landlord sent a letter to me to give 60 days notice to them of my intentions to renew. I received it 10 days before my decision is due. Then they want to enter my apartment within 5 days to inspect the apartment after giving them notice to vacate. What are my rights as a tennant? Gloria

So the letter said 60 days to let them know and they give it to you 10 days before the 60 days was up?

Is your lease month to month or year to year?

Expert:  Taylor replied 5 months ago.

To answer your second question, yes your landlord is permitted to enter your property if he gives you notice.

Expert:  Taylor replied 5 months ago.

In most situations your landlord does not need to give you a reason (although acting on discriminatory or retaliatory motives is illegal). A landlord can simply give you a written notice to move, allowing you 30 days as required by Illinois law and specifying the date on which your tenancy will end.
