What Happens if You Break a Lease Agreement?

 Posted on August 14, 2023 in Uncategorized

North Chicago, IL real estate lawyerNorth Chicago tenants may be wondering what happens if you break a standard lease agreement.

The laws of the state of Illinois do allow tenants to break a lease agreement without a penalty in certain circumstances, even if the lease has been modified. For example, tenants may be able to break a lease without penalty if they are a part of the uniformed services (i.e. military), if they or their children are victims of domestic or sexual violence, if the rental property is uninhabitable, or if they are being harassed or have had their privacy rights violated by the landlord.
