Good morning. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Illinois law requires one full month's notice to terminate a month to month notice. It should be written notice, as well.
The "full month" means that if you give written notice today, the lease will terminate on July 1.
If the tenant is not out by that date then you can file a forcible detainer to get an order for possession. The order for possession is then executed by the county sheriff, who physically evicts the tenant, along with placing their personal property on the curb.
Hopefully, the tenant will vacate before the notice period terminates.
If you must file a forcible detainer, the clerk of the court will have the forms you need.
