Illinois Foreclosure Law

HomeForeclosuresIllinois Foreclosure Law

Illinois state laws permit only the judicial form of foreclosure which allows rights of redemption but is without the benefit of deficiency judgments.

  • To initiate the foreclosure process, the lenders have to issue a notice to borrower who has to respond to such notice in less than 30 days.
  • If the court issues a favorable verdict to the lender, he will be entitled to sell the property after complying with all provisions as laid out in the Illinois statutes.
  • In addition to judicial foreclosure, lenders can also resort to deed in lieu of foreclosure or consent foreclosure if the borrower agrees to it.
