That depends...was there a written contract regarding this loan? Or was it verbal?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It was verbal. The check that was cashed has a description of being a loan
Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Thanks

5 years. The statute of limitations to enforce a verbal contract in IL is 5 years. So you can sue for up to 5 years from when the loan contract was first breached

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
