The 7-Day Notice of Termination (No Lease/End of Lease) is used by landlords in Illinois to end a week-to-week tenancy. A landlord is required to provide the tenant with this notice, giving the tenant 7 days to move out prior to any eviction filings. Day 1 is the day the tenant was served the Notice. Weekends and holidays are included in the 7-day period.
Is this Notice Curable?
No, this notice is not curable. This means there is nothing the tenant can do to avoid eviction if they do not move out by the assigned date.
How to Serve this Notice
Serving an eviction notice to a defendant is a formal process that may be used as evidence later in a court case.

Acceptable methods of service for this notice are personal service or substituted service. Posting is only permitted if the tenant has abandoned the property and no one is living there. The affidavit of service should be notarized.
