COOK COUNTY SHERIFF TOM DART explains why he refuses to evict tenants. “Too many times, our deputies arrive at a home to carry out a mortgage foreclosure eviction, only to find a tenant — dutifully paying their rent each month — who is unaware their landlord stopped using that rent money to pay the mortgage. They had no fair warning that they were about to be thrown out of their home. That stops today. We won’t be doing the banks’ work for them anymore. We won’t surprise tenants with an eviction order intended for their landlord. We’re asking either the state courts or Legislature to order the banks to simply conduct very basic work before requesting an eviction.”
