Online Rent Collection Made Easy

As a reliable rent collection agency, we use a state-of-the-art online portal compatible with a range of electronic payment methods to protect your cash flow. Our software meticulously tracks payments and automates the process to increase efficiencies and eradicate error. And if there’s a delay, we always notify tenants to avoid late payments and penalties.

At 33 Realty, we carefully explain the collection process to tenants to avoid misunderstandings. Our team collects rent when it's due and delivers a 5-day notice for late payments in compliance with Illinois Law. If there’s no response, we turn tenants over for an eviction to be filed with your approval.

Rent Payment Laws in Illinois

In Illinois, there are a number of laws surrounding rental payments, including:
The lease determines rent
It's up to the landlord to determine when and how they want rent to be paid, whether an online rent payment systems, by check, or through platforms such as Venmo.
Late fees are acceptable within reason
The definition of "reasonable" is up to the court. Late fees only apply as long as the process is mentioned in the lease.
Tenants have five days to pay rent after a "notice to quit"
If landlords want to take legal action, they must first serve the tenant with a "notice to quit" informing them, and it must be in writing and delivered to the tenant in person.
Rent can be raised with a 60-day notice
Raising the rent requires giving the tenant at least 60 days' notice before upcoming rent payments. For week-to-week and month-to-month tenancy, landlords need to provide at least one week's and 30-day notice, respectively.
There's no rent control in Illinois
The Rent Control Preemption Act prohibits all local governments from limiting how much they can charge for rental properties.
