Practical Solutions For Illinois Landlords In Disputes

A lease is essentially a contract. Each party is expected to carefully consider and agree to the terms of that lease before signing. As a landlord, you have the right to expect those terms to be met so you can get the benefit of your bargain. When tenants fail to do so or fall short on their rent, however, it may not only deprive you of those benefits but also cost you additional money.

At Schlueter Ecklund & Davitt, we provide eviction, rent collection and other legal services to area landlords in a timely, cost-effective manner. Our goal is to protect your rights as we effectively resolve both problems with tenants and actions brought by tenants against you.

Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined legal experience, and we have built our law firm through dedication to exceptional client service and optimal results. If you are a commercial landlord in greater Rockford or anywhere in northern Illinois, call 815-516-8264 or contact us online to discuss resolving your landlord-tenant disputes.

Effective Representation In Evictions, Collections And Other Disputes With Tenants
