Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

CIVIL PROCEDURE
(735 ILCS 5/) Code of Civil Procedure.

735 ILCS 5/15-1508

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1508) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1508)
    Sec. 15-1508. Report of Sale and Confirmation of Sale.
    (a) Report. The person conducting the sale shall promptly make a report to the court, which report shall include a copy of all receipts and, if any, certificate of sale.
    (b) Hearing. Upon motion and notice in accordance with court rules applicable to motions generally, which motion shall not be made prior to sale, the court shall conduct a hearing to confirm the sale. Unless the court finds that (i) a notice required in accordance with subsection (c) of Section 15-1507 was not given, (ii) the terms of sale were unconscionable, (iii) the sale was conducted fraudulently, or (iv) justice was otherwise not done, the court shall then enter an order confirming the sale. The confirmation order shall include a name, address, and telephone number of the holder of the certificate of sale or deed issued pursuant to that certificate or, if no certificate or deed was issued, the purchaser, whom a municipality or county may contact with concerns about the real estate. The confirmation order may also:
        (1) approve the mortgagee's fees and costs arising
    
between the entry of the judgment of foreclosure and the confirmation hearing, those costs and fees to be allowable to the same extent as provided in the note and mortgage and in Section 15-1504;
        (2) provide for a personal judgment against any party
    
for a deficiency; and
        (3) determine the priority of the judgments of
    
parties who deferred proving the priority pursuant to subsection (h) of Section 15-1506, but the court shall not defer confirming the sale pending the determination of such priority.
    (b-3) Hearing to confirm sale of abandoned residential property. Upon motion and notice by first-class mail to the last known address of the mortgagor, which motion shall be made prior to the sale and heard by the court at the earliest practicable time after conclusion of the sale, and upon the posting at the property address of the notice required by paragraph (2) of subsection (l) of Section 15-1505.8, the court shall enter an order confirming the sale of the abandoned residential property, unless the court finds that a reason set forth in items (i) through (iv) of subsection (b) of this Section exists for not approving the sale, or an order is entered pursuant to subsection (h) of Section 15-1505.8. The confirmation order also may address the matters identified in items (1) through (3) of subsection (b) of this Section. The notice required under subsection (b-5) of this Section shall not be required.
    (b-5) Notice with respect to residential real estate. With respect to residential real estate, the notice required under subsection (b) of this Section shall be sent to the mortgagor even if the mortgagor has previously been held in default. In the event the mortgagor has filed an appearance, the notice shall be sent to the address indicated on the appearance. In all other cases, the notice shall be sent to the mortgagor at the common address of the foreclosed property. The notice shall be sent by first class mail. Unless the right to possession has been previously terminated by the court, the notice shall include the following language in 12-point boldface capitalized type:
IF YOU ARE THE MORTGAGOR (HOMEOWNER), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN IN POSSESSION FOR 30 DAYS AFTER ENTRY OF AN ORDER OF POSSESSION, IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 15-1701(c) OF THE ILLINOIS MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE LAW.
    (b-10) Notice of confirmation order sent to municipality or county. A copy of the confirmation order required under subsection (b) shall be sent to the municipality in which the foreclosed property is located, or to the county within the boundary of which the foreclosed property is located if the foreclosed property is located in an unincorporated territory. A municipality or county must clearly publish on its website a single address to which a copy of the order shall be sent. If a municipality or county does not maintain a website, then the municipality or county must publicly post in its main office a single address to which a copy of the order shall be sent. In the event that a municipality or county has not complied with the publication requirement in this subsection (b-10), then a copy of the order shall be sent by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the chairperson of the county board or county clerk in the case of a county, to the mayor or city clerk in the case of a city, to the president of the board of trustees or village clerk in the case of a village, or to the president or town clerk in the case of a town.
    (b-15) Notice of confirmation order sent to known insurers. With respect to residential real estate, the party filing the complaint shall send a copy of the confirmation order required under subsection (b) by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the last known property insurer of the foreclosed property. Failure to send or receive a copy of the order shall not impair or abrogate in any way the rights of the mortgagee or purchaser or affect the status of the foreclosure proceedings.
    (c) Failure to Give Notice. If any sale is held without compliance with subsection (c) of Section 15-1507 of this Article, any party entitled to the notice provided for in paragraph (3) of that subsection (c) who was not so notified may, by motion supported by affidavit made prior to confirmation of such sale, ask the court which entered the judgment to set aside the sale. Any such party shall guarantee or secure by bond a bid equal to the successful bid at the prior sale, unless the party seeking to set aside the sale is the mortgagor, the real estate sold at the sale is residential real estate, and the mortgagor occupies the residential real estate at the time the motion is filed. In that event, no guarantee or bond shall be required of the mortgagor. Any subsequent sale is subject to the same notice requirement as the original sale.
    (d) Validity of Sale. Except as provided in subsection (c) of Section 15-1508, no sale under this Article shall be held invalid or be set aside because of any defect in the notice thereof or in the publication of the same, or in the proceedings of the officer conducting the sale, except upon good cause shown in a hearing pursuant to subsection (b) of Section 15-1508. At any time after a sale has occurred, any party entitled to notice under paragraph (3) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1507 may recover from the mortgagee any damages caused by the mortgagee's failure to comply with such paragraph (3). Any party who recovers damages in a judicial proceeding brought under this subsection may also recover from the mortgagee the reasonable expenses of litigation, including reasonable attorney's fees.
    (d-5) Making Home Affordable Program. The court that entered the judgment shall set aside a sale held pursuant to Section 15-1507, upon motion of the mortgagor at any time prior to the confirmation of the sale, if the mortgagor proves by a preponderance of the evidence that (i) the mortgagor has applied for assistance under the Making Home Affordable Program established by the United States Department of the Treasury pursuant to the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, as amended by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and (ii) the mortgaged real estate was sold in material violation of the program's requirements for proceeding to a judicial sale. The provisions of this subsection (d-5), except for this sentence, shall become inoperative on January 1, 2016 for all actions filed under this Article after December 31, 2015, in which the mortgagor did not apply for assistance under the Making Home Affordable Program on or before December 31, 2015.
    (e) Deficiency Judgment. In any order confirming a sale pursuant to the judgment of foreclosure, the court shall also enter a personal judgment for deficiency against any party (i) if otherwise authorized and (ii) to the extent requested in the complaint and proven upon presentation of the report of sale in accordance with Section 15-1508. Except as otherwise provided in this Article, a judgment may be entered for any balance of money that may be found due to the plaintiff, over and above the proceeds of the sale or sales, and enforcement may be had for the collection of such balance, the same as when the judgment is solely for the payment of money. Such judgment may be entered, or enforcement had, only in cases where personal service has been had upon the persons personally liable for the mortgage indebtedness, unless they have entered their appearance in the foreclosure action.
    (f) Satisfaction. Upon confirmation of the sale, the judgment stands satisfied to the extent of the sale price less expenses and costs. If the order confirming the sale includes a deficiency judgment, the judgment shall become a lien in the manner of any other judgment for the payment of money.
    (g) The order confirming the sale shall include, notwithstanding any previous orders awarding possession during the pendency of the foreclosure, an award to the purchaser of possession of the mortgaged real estate, as of the date 30 days after the entry of the order, against the parties to the foreclosure whose interests have been terminated.
    An order of possession authorizing the removal of a person from possession of the mortgaged real estate shall be entered and enforced only against those persons personally named as individuals in the complaint or the petition under subsection (h) of Section 15-1701. No order of possession issued under this Section shall be entered against a lessee with a bona fide lease of a dwelling unit in residential real estate in foreclosure, whether or not the lessee has been made a party in the foreclosure. An order shall not be entered and enforced against any person who is only generically described as an unknown owner or nonrecord claimant or by another generic designation in the complaint.
    Notwithstanding the preceding paragraph, the failure to personally name, include, or seek an award of possession of the mortgaged real estate against a person in the confirmation order shall not abrogate any right that the purchaser may have to possession of the mortgaged real estate and to maintain a proceeding against that person for possession under Article IX of this Code or, if applicable, under subsection (h) of Section 15-1701; and possession against a person who (1) has not been personally named as a party to the foreclosure and (2) has not been provided an opportunity to be heard in the foreclosure proceeding may be sought only by maintaining a proceeding under Article IX of this Code or, if applicable, under subsection (h) of Section 15-1701.
    (h) With respect to mortgaged real estate containing 5 or more dwelling units, the order confirming the sale shall also provide that (i) the mortgagor shall transfer to the purchaser the security deposits, if any, that the mortgagor received to secure payment of rent or to compensate for damage to the mortgaged real estate from any current occupant of a dwelling unit of the mortgaged real estate, as well as any statutory interest that has not been paid to the occupant, and (ii) the mortgagor shall provide an accounting of the security deposits that are transferred, including the name and address of each occupant for whom the mortgagor holds the deposit and the amount of the deposit and any statutory interest.

    (c) In the event that the holder or purchaser ascertains the identity and address of an occupant of a dwelling unit of the mortgaged real estate more than 21 days after the confirmation of sale under Section 15-1508, the holder or purchaser shall provide the notice required by subparagraph (2) of subsection (a) within 7 days of ascertaining the identity and address of the occupant.
    (d)(i) A holder or purchaser who fails to comply with subsections (a), (b), and (c) may not collect any rent due and owing from a known occupant, or terminate a known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent, until the holder or purchaser has served the notice described in paragraph (2) of subsection (a) of this Section upon the known occupant. After providing such notice, the holder or purchaser may collect any and all rent otherwise due and owing the holder or purchaser from the known occupant and may terminate the known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent if the holder or purchaser otherwise has such right to terminate.

735 ILCS 5/15-1509

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1509) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1509)
    Sec. 15-1509. Transfer of Title and Title Acquired.
    (a) Deed. After (i) confirmation of the sale, and (ii) payment of the purchase price and any other amounts required to be paid by the purchaser at sale, the court (or, if the court shall so order, the person who conducted the sale or such person's successor or some persons specifically appointed by the court for that purpose), shall upon the request of the holder of the certificate of sale (or the purchaser if no certificate of sale was issued), promptly execute a deed to the holder or purchaser sufficient to convey title. Such deed shall identify the court and the caption of the case in which judgment was entered authorizing issuance of the deed. Signature and the recital in the deed of the title or authority of the person signing the deed as grantor, of authority pursuant to the judgment and of the giving of the notices required by this Article is sufficient proof of the facts recited and of such authority to execute the deed, but such deed shall not be construed to contain any covenant on the part of the person executing it. If the deed issues to a grantee prior to the expiration of the period for appealing the confirmation of sale, and the grantee conveys title to another party within that period, that other party will not be deemed a bona fide purchaser unless and until such period expires without an appeal having been filed or, an appeal having been filed, such appeal is denied or withdrawn.
    (b) Effect Upon Delivery of Deed. Delivery of the deed executed on the sale of the real estate, even if the purchaser or holder of the certificate of sale is a party to the foreclosure, shall be sufficient to pass the title thereto.
    (c) Claims Barred. Any vesting of title by a consent foreclosure pursuant to Section 15-1402 or by deed pursuant to subsection (b) of Section 15-1509, unless otherwise specified in the judgment of foreclosure, shall be an entire bar of (i) all claims of parties to the foreclosure and (ii) all claims of any nonrecord claimant who is given notice of the foreclosure in accordance with paragraph (2) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1502, notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (g) of Section 2-1301 to the contrary. Any person seeking relief from any judgment or order entered in the foreclosure in accordance with subsection (g) of Section 2-1301 of the Code of Civil Procedure may claim only an interest in the proceeds of sale.

A defendant who exercises the defendant's right of reinstatement or redemption shall not be considered a prevailing party for purposes of this Section. Nothing in this subsection shall abrogate contractual terms in the mortgage or other written agreement between the mortgagor and the mortgagee or rights as otherwise provided in this Article which allow the mortgagee to recover attorney's fees and costs under subsection (b).

    (d) remittance of any surplus to be held by the person appointed by the court to conduct the sale until further order of the court.

735 ILCS 5/15-1601

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1601) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1601)
    Sec. 15-1601. Waiver of Rights of reinstatement and Redemption. (a) Residential and Certain Agricultural Real Estate. Except as otherwise provided in this Article, no mortgagor of real estate which is residential real estate at the time of such attempted waiver may waive the mortgagor's rights of reinstatement and redemption, or either of them, and any such waiver shall be void. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this Section, no mortgagor of real estate which is agricultural real estate at the time of such attempted waiver may waive the mortgagor's rights of reinstatement and redemption, or either of them, and any such waiver shall be void.
    (b) Other Real Estate. Any corporation or any corporate trustee of any express trust who is a mortgagor of agricultural real estate may waive the mortgagor's right of redemption (i) by express waiver stated in the mortgage or (ii) by any other waiver in writing which has been acknowledged by the mortgagor and recorded. A mortgagor of real estate other than a mortgagor of residential real estate or other mortgagor who is not otherwise so prohibited by this Article may waive the mortgagor's right of redemption (i) by express waiver stated in the mortgage or (ii) by any other waiver in writing which has been acknowledged by the mortgagor and recorded.
    (c) Waiver After Commencement of Foreclosure. After commencement of a foreclosure proceeding under this Article a mortgagor of residential real estate or other mortgagor who is otherwise so prohibited may waive the mortgagor's rights of reinstatement and redemption, or either of them, if (i) the mortgagor expressly consents in writing to the entry of a judgment without such right of reinstatement or redemption, (ii) such written consent is filed with the clerk of the court, and (iii) the mortgagee consents and agrees to waive any and all rights to a deficiency judgment.
    (d) Prior Waivers. Nothing contained in this Section shall invalidate any waiver of any right of redemption made pursuant to Section 12-124 or Section 12-125 of the Code of Civil Procedure in effect prior to July 1, 1987 which is contained in any instrument executed prior to July 1, 1987.

735 ILCS 5/15-1602

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1602) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1602)
    Sec. 15-1602. Reinstatement. In any foreclosure of a mortgage executed after July 21, 1959, which has become due prior to the maturity date fixed in the mortgage, or in any instrument or obligation secured by the mortgage, through acceleration because of a default under the mortgage, a mortgagor may reinstate the mortgage as provided herein. Reinstatement is effected by curing all defaults then existing, other than payment of such portion of the principal which would not have been due had no acceleration occurred, and by paying all costs and expenses required by the mortgage to be paid in the event of such defaults, provided that such cure and payment are made prior to the expiration of 90 days from the date the mortgagor or, if more than one, all the mortgagors (i) have been served with summons or by publication or (ii) have otherwise submitted to the jurisdiction of the court. When service is made by publication, the first date of publication shall be used for the calculation. Upon such reinstatement of the mortgage, the foreclosure and any other proceedings for the collection or enforcement of the obligation secured by the mortgage shall be dismissed and the mortgage documents shall remain in full force and effect as if no acceleration or default had occurred. The relief granted by this Section shall not be exhausted by a single use thereof, but if the court has made an express written finding that the mortgagor has exercised its right to reinstate pursuant to this Section, such relief shall not be again available to the mortgagor under the same mortgage for a period of five years from the date of the dismissal of such foreclosure. The provisions of Section 9-110 of the Code of Civil Procedure shall be inapplicable with respect to any instrument which is deemed a mortgage under this Article. The court may enter a judgment of foreclosure prior to the expiration of the reinstatement period, subject to the right of the mortgagor to reinstate the mortgage under this Section.

735 ILCS 5/15-1603

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1603) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1603)
    Sec. 15-1603. Redemption.
    (a) Owner of Redemption. Except as provided in subsection (b) of Section 15-1402, only an owner of redemption may redeem from the foreclosure, and such owner of redemption may redeem only during the redemption period specified in subsection (b) of Section 15-1603 and only if the right of redemption has not been validly waived.
    (b) Redemption Period.
        (1) In the foreclosure of a mortgage of real estate
    
which is residential real estate at the time the foreclosure is commenced, the redemption period shall end on the later of (i) the date 7 months from the date the mortgagor or, if more than one, all the mortgagors (A) have been served with summons or by publication or (B) have otherwise submitted to the jurisdiction of the court, or (ii) the date 3 months from the date of entry of a judgment of foreclosure.
        (2) In all other foreclosures, the redemption period
    
shall end on the later of (i) the date 6 months from the date the mortgagor or, if more than one, all the mortgagors (A) have been served with summons or by publication or (B) have otherwise submitted to the jurisdiction of the court, or (ii) the date 3 months from the date of entry of a judgment of foreclosure.
        (3) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2), the
    
redemption period shall end at the later of the expiration of any reinstatement period provided for in Section 15-1602 or the date 60 days after the date the judgment of foreclosure is entered, if the court finds that (i) the value of the mortgaged real estate as of the date of the judgment is less than 90% of the amount specified pursuant to subsection (d) of Section 15-1603 and (ii) the mortgagee waives any and all rights to a personal judgment for a deficiency against the mortgagor and against all other persons liable for the indebtedness or other obligations secured by the mortgage.
        (4) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2), the
    
redemption period shall end on the date 30 days after the date the judgment of foreclosure is entered if the court finds that the mortgaged real estate has been abandoned. In cases where the redemption period is shortened on account of abandonment, the reinstatement period shall not extend beyond the redemption period as shortened.
    (c) Extension of Redemption Period.
        (1) Once expired, the right of redemption provided
    
for in Sections 15-1603 or 15-1604 shall not be revived. The period within which the right of redemption provided for in Sections 15-1603 or 15-1604 may be exercised runs independently of any action by any person to enforce the judgment of foreclosure or effect a sale pursuant thereto. Neither the initiation of any legal proceeding nor the order of any court staying the enforcement of a judgment of foreclosure or the sale pursuant to a judgment or the confirmation of the sale, shall have the effect of tolling the running of the redemption period.
        (2) If a court has the authority to stay, and does
    
stay, the running of the redemption period, or if the redemption period is extended by any statute of the United States, the redemption period shall be extended until the expiration of the same number of days after the expiration of the stay order as the number of days remaining in the redemption period at the time the stay order became effective, or, if later, until the expiration of 30 days after the stay order terminates. If the stay order terminates more than 30 days prior to the expiration of the redemption period, the redemption period shall not be extended.
    (d) Amount Required to Redeem. The amount required to redeem shall be the sum of:
        (1) The amount specified in the judgment of
    
foreclosure, which shall consist of (i) all principal and accrued interest secured by the mortgage and due as of the date of the judgment, (ii) all costs allowed by law, (iii) costs and expenses approved by the court, (iv) to the extent provided for in the mortgage and approved by the court, additional costs, expenses and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by the mortgagee, (v) all amounts paid pursuant to Section 15-1505 and (vi) per diem interest from the date of judgment to the date of redemption calculated at the mortgage rate of interest applicable as if no default had occurred; and
        (2) The amount of other expenses authorized by the
    
court which the mortgagee reasonably incurs between the date of judgment and the date of redemption, which shall be the amount certified by the mortgagee in accordance with subsection (e) of Section 15-1603.
    (e) Notice of Intent to Redeem. An owner of redemption who intends to redeem shall give written notice of such intent to redeem to the mortgagee's attorney of record specifying the date designated for redemption and the current address of the owner of redemption for purposes of receiving notice. Such owner of redemption shall file with the clerk of the court a certification of the giving of such notice. The notice of intent to redeem must be received by the mortgagee's attorney at least 15 days (other than Saturday, Sunday or court holiday) prior to the date designated for redemption. The mortgagee shall thereupon file with the clerk of the court and shall give written notice to the owner of redemption at least three days (other than Saturday, Sunday or court holiday) before the date designated for redemption a certification, accompanied by copies of paid receipts or appropriate affidavits, of any expenses authorized in paragraph (2) of subsection (d) of Section 15-1603. If the mortgagee fails to serve such certification within the time specified herein, then the owner of redemption intending to redeem may redeem on the date designated for redemption in the notice of intent to redeem, and the mortgagee shall not be entitled to payment of any expenses authorized in paragraph (2) of subsection (d) of Section 15-1603.
    (f) Procedure for Redemption.
        (1) An owner of redemption may redeem the real estate
    
from the foreclosure by paying the amount specified in subsection (d) of Section 15-1603 to the mortgagee or the mortgagee's attorney of record on or before the date designated for redemption pursuant to subsection (e) of Section 15-1603.
        (2) If the mortgagee refuses to accept payment or if
    
the owner of redemption redeeming from the foreclosure objects to the reasonableness of the additional expenses authorized in paragraph (2) of subsection (d) of Section 15-1603 and certified in accordance with subsection (e) of Section 15-1603, the owner of redemption shall pay the certified amount to the clerk of the court on or before the date designated for redemption, together with a written statement specifying the expenses to which objection is made. In such case the clerk shall pay to the mortgagee the amount tendered minus the amount to which the objection pertains.
        (3) Upon payment to the clerk, whether or not the
    
owner of redemption files an objection at the time of payment, the clerk shall give a receipt of payment to the person redeeming from the foreclosure, and shall file a copy of that receipt in the foreclosure record. Upon receipt of the amounts specified to be paid to the mortgagee pursuant to this Section, the mortgagee shall promptly furnish the mortgagor with a release of the mortgage or satisfaction of the judgment, as appropriate, and the evidence of all indebtedness secured by the mortgage shall be cancelled.
    (g) Procedure Upon Objection. If an objection is filed by an owner of redemption in accordance with paragraph (2) of subsection (f) of Section 15-1603, the clerk shall hold the amount to which the objection pertains until the court orders distribution of those funds. The court shall hold a hearing promptly to determine the distribution of any funds held by the clerk pursuant to such objection. Each party shall pay its own costs and expenses in connection with any objection, including attorneys' fees, subject to Section 2-611 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
    (h) Failure to Redeem. Unless the real estate being foreclosed is redeemed from the foreclosure, it shall be sold as provided in this Article.

    Sec. 15-1603.5. Strict foreclosure of an omitted subordinate interest.
    (a) As used in this Section, "omitted subordinate interest" means a recorded subordinate interest in real estate where:
        (1) the real estate is the subject of a foreclosure
    
action under this Article;
        (2) a motion to confirm judicial sale under
    
subsection (b) of Section 15-1508 is either pending or has been granted;
        (3) the interest attached to the real estate prior to
    
the filing or recording of any notice in accordance with Sections 2-1901 and 15-1503; and
        (4) the person who has the interest was not named in
    
the foreclosure complaint.
    (b) The holder of the certificate of sale or any person who acquired title pursuant to Section 15-1509 or any subsequent successor, assignee, transferee, or grantee who discovers an omitted subordinate interest may file a strict foreclosure complaint naming the person who has the omitted subordinate interest as the defendant. A complaint filed under this Section must include substantially the following:
        (1) the identity of the plaintiff and how the
    
plaintiff acquired its interest in the property which is the subject of the strict foreclosure;
        (2) the docket number of the prior foreclosure action
    
and the recording number and date of the mortgage that was previously foreclosed;
        (3) the legal description, common address, and parcel
    
identification number of the real estate which is the subject of the strict foreclosure;
        (4) the recording number and a copy of the recorded
    
instrument identifying the person who has the omitted subordinate interest that is named as the defendant;
        (5) the amount of the successful bid at the
    
foreclosure sale, as stated in the report of sale in the prior foreclosure action, with a copy of the report of sale attached to the complaint;
        (6) an allegation that, due to inadvertence or
    
mistake or such other reason as may be applicable, the person who has the omitted subordinate interest was not made a party defendant in the prior foreclosure action and the omitted subordinate interest was not terminated by the judgment of foreclosure and when the subject property was sold by judicial sale; and
        (7) a request for relief setting forth the
    
redemption period as provided in this Section and identifying a contact by name and telephone number who will accept tender of the redemption amount.
    (c) Subject to the objection of the defendant, the court shall enter a judgment extinguishing the omitted subordinate interest.
    (d) If the defendant objects to the entry of the judgment, the court, after a hearing, shall enter an order providing either:
        (1) that the defendant has not agreed to pay the
    
amount required to redeem, in which event the court shall proceed to enter the judgment; or
        (2) that the defendant has agreed to pay the amount
    
required to redeem.
    (e) The amount required to redeem shall be the sum bid at the prior foreclosure sale plus any costs and fees incurred subsequent to the sale for the payment of taxes, preservation of the property, or any other actions taken by the holder of the certificate of sale to protect its interest in the property. The amount required to redeem shall not include any costs or fees incurred by the plaintiff in the strict foreclosure case filed under this Section.
    The order shall state that upon payment of the redemption amount within the redemption period, which shall extend 30 days after the entry of the order, title to the real estate shall vest in the defendant who redeems pursuant to this Section. If the defendant subject to the order has not paid the amount required to redeem within the 30-day redemption period, the interest of the defendant in the property is terminated.
    (f) A person whose omitted subordinate interest was not terminated by a prior foreclosure action does not have a right to file a strict foreclosure action.
    (g) Notwithstanding that the person's omitted subordinate interest in the real estate has been terminated pursuant to this Section, nothing in this Section shall be construed to extinguish or impair any claim of such person in the surplus proceeds of a sale held or distributed pursuant to subsection (d) of Section 15-1512 of this Code after the confirmation of the sale of the real estate for which such person had an omitted subordinate interest.

    Sec. 15-1604. Special Right to Redeem.
    (a) Circumstances. With respect to residential real estate, if (i) the purchaser at the sale was a mortgagee who was a party to the foreclosure or its nominee and (ii) the sale price was less than the amount specified in subsection (d) of Section 15-1603, then, and only in such circumstances, an owner of redemption as specified in subsection (a) of Section 15-1603 shall have a special right to redeem, for a period ending 30 days after the date the sale is confirmed, by paying to the mortgagee (i) the sale price, (ii) all additional costs and expenses incurred by the mortgagee set forth in the report of sale and confirmed by the court, and (iii) interest at the statutory judgment rate from the date the purchase price was paid or credited as an offset.
    (b) Procedure. Upon receipt of such amount, the mortgagee shall assign to the redeeming owner of redemption its certificate of sale or its right to such certificate or to a deed. The mortgagee shall give to the redeeming owner of redemption an executed duplicate of such assignment, marked "Duplicate", which duplicate the owner of redemption shall file with the court. If a deed has been issued to the mortgagee or its nominee, the holder of such deed, or such holder's successor in title, shall execute and deliver a deed conveying the mortgaged real estate to the redeeming owner of redemption subject only to those encumbrances that would normally arise on title if a redemption were made under Section 15-1603, including a deficiency, if any, resulting from the foreclosure sale. Nothing contained herein shall affect the right to a personal or in rem deficiency judgment, and enforcement thereof shall be allowed as provided by law. Any deficiency judgment shall retain the same priority on title as did the mortgage from which it arose. The mortgagee, its nominee or its successors in title shall not permit encumbrances on title arising on or after the date of the deed to the mortgagee or nominee caused by or relating to the mortgagee or its nominee or its successors in title.

Part 17. Possession During Foreclosure

735 ILCS 5/15-1701

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1701) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1701)
    Sec. 15-1701. Right to possession.
    (a) General. The provisions of this Article shall govern the right to possession of the mortgaged real estate during foreclosure. Possession under this Article includes physical possession of the mortgaged real estate to the same extent to which the mortgagor, absent the foreclosure, would have been entitled to physical possession. For the purposes of Part 17, real estate is residential real estate only if it is residential real estate at the time the foreclosure is commenced.
    (b) Pre-Judgment. Prior to the entry of a judgment of foreclosure:
        (1) In the case of residential real estate, the
    
mortgagor shall be entitled to possession of the real estate except if (i) the mortgagee shall object and show good cause, (ii) the mortgagee is so authorized by the terms of the mortgage or other written instrument, and (iii) the court is satisfied that there is a reasonable probability that the mortgagee will prevail on a final hearing of the cause, the court shall upon request place the mortgagee in possession. If the residential real estate consists of more than one dwelling unit, then for the purpose of this Part residential real estate shall mean only that dwelling unit or units occupied by persons described in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) of Section 15-1219.
        (2) In all other cases, if (i) the mortgagee is so
    
authorized by the terms of the mortgage or other written instrument, and (ii) the court is satisfied that there is a reasonable probability that the mortgagee will prevail on a final hearing of the cause, the mortgagee shall upon request be placed in possession of the real estate, except that if the mortgagor shall object and show good cause, the court shall allow the mortgagor to remain in possession.
    (c) Judgment Through 30 Days After Sale Confirmation. After the entry of a judgment of foreclosure and through the 30th day after a foreclosure sale is confirmed:
        (1) Subsection (b) of Section 15-1701 shall be
    
applicable, regardless of the provisions of the mortgage or other instrument, except that after a sale pursuant to the judgment the holder of the certificate of sale (or, if none, the purchaser at the sale) shall have the mortgagee's right to be placed in possession, with all rights and duties of a mortgagee in possession under this Article.
        (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1) of subsection (b)
    
and paragraph (1) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1701, upon request of the mortgagee, a mortgagor of residential real estate shall not be allowed to remain in possession between the expiration of the redemption period and through the 30th day after sale confirmation unless (i) the mortgagor pays to the mortgagee or such holder or purchaser, whichever is applicable, monthly the lesser of the interest due under the mortgage calculated at the mortgage rate of interest applicable as if no default had occurred or the fair rental value of the real estate, or (ii) the mortgagor otherwise shows good cause. Any amounts paid by the mortgagor pursuant to this subsection shall be credited against the amounts due from the mortgagor.
    (d) After 30 Days After Sale Confirmation. The holder of the certificate of sale or deed issued pursuant to that certificate or, if no certificate or deed was issued, the purchaser, except to the extent the holder or purchaser may consent otherwise, shall be entitled to possession of the mortgaged real estate, as of the date 30 days after the order confirming the sale is entered, against those parties to the foreclosure whose interests the court has ordered terminated, without further notice to any party, further order of the court, or resort to proceedings under any other statute other than this Article. This right to possession shall be limited by the provisions governing entering and enforcing orders of possession under subsection (g) of Section 15-1508. If the holder or purchaser determines that there are occupants of the mortgaged real estate who have not been made parties to the foreclosure and had their interests terminated therein, the holder or purchaser may bring a proceeding under subsection (h) of this Section, if applicable, or under Article IX of this Code to terminate the rights of possession of any such occupants. The holder or purchaser shall not be entitled to proceed against any such occupant under Article IX of this Code until after 30 days after the order confirming the sale is entered.
    (e) Termination of Leases. A lease of all or any part of the mortgaged real estate shall not be terminated automatically solely by virtue of the entry into possession by (i) a mortgagee or receiver prior to the entry of an order confirming the sale, (ii) the holder of the certificate of sale, (iii) the holder of the deed issued pursuant to that certificate, or (iv) if no certificate or deed was issued, the purchaser at the sale.
    (f) Other Statutes; Instruments. The provisions of this Article providing for possession of mortgaged real estate shall supersede any other inconsistent statutory provisions. In particular, and without limitation, whenever a receiver is sought to be appointed in any action in which a foreclosure is also pending, a receiver shall be appointed only in accordance with this Article. Except as may be authorized by this Article, no mortgage or other instrument may modify or supersede the provisions of this Article.
    (g) Certain Leases. Leases of the mortgaged real estate entered into by a mortgagee in possession or a receiver and approved by the court in a foreclosure shall be binding on all parties, including the mortgagor after redemption, the purchaser at a sale pursuant to a judgment of foreclosure and any person acquiring an interest in the mortgaged real estate after entry of a judgment of foreclosure in accordance with Sections 15-1402 and 15-1403.
    (h) Proceedings Against Certain Occupants.
        (1) The mortgagee-in-possession of the mortgaged real
    
estate under Section 15-1703, a receiver appointed under Section 15-1704, a holder of the certificate of sale or deed, or the purchaser may, at any time during the pendency of the foreclosure and up to 90 days after the date of the order confirming the sale, file a supplemental petition for possession against a person not personally named as a party to the foreclosure. This subsection (h) does not apply to any lessee with a bona fide lease of a dwelling unit in residential real estate in foreclosure.
        (2) The supplemental petition for possession shall
    
name each such occupant against whom possession is sought and state the facts upon which the claim for relief is premised.
        (3) The petitioner shall serve upon each named
    
occupant the petition, a notice of hearing on the petition, and, if any, a copy of the certificate of sale or deed. The proceeding for the termination of such occupant's possessory interest, including service of the notice of the hearing and the petition, shall in all respects comport with the requirements of Article IX of this Code, except as otherwise specified in this Section. The hearing shall be no less than 21 days from the date of service of the notice.
        (4) The supplemental petition shall be heard as part
    
of the foreclosure proceeding and without the payment of additional filing fees. An order for possession obtained under this Section shall name each occupant whose interest has been terminated, shall recite that it is only effective as to the occupant so named and those holding under them, and shall be enforceable for no more than 120 days after its entry, except that the 120-day period may be extended to the extent and in the manner provided in Section 9-117 of Article IX and except as provided in item (5) of this subsection (h).
        (5) In a case of foreclosure where the occupant is
    
current on his or her rent, or where timely written notice of to whom and where the rent is to be paid has not been provided to the occupant, or where the occupant has made good-faith efforts to make rental payments in order to keep current, any order of possession must allow the occupant to retain possession of the property covered in his or her rental agreement (i) for 120 days following the notice of the hearing on the supplemental petition that has been properly served upon the occupant, or (ii) through the duration of his or her lease, whichever is shorter, provided that if the duration of his or her lease is less than 30 days from the date of the order, the order shall allow the occupant to retain possession for 30 days from the date of the order. A mortgagee in possession, receiver, holder of a certificate of sale or deed, or purchaser at the judicial sale, who asserts that the occupant is not current in rent, shall file an affidavit to that effect in the supplemental petition proceeding. If the occupant has been given timely written notice of to whom and where the rent is to be paid, this item (5) shall only apply if the occupant continues to pay his or her rent in full during the 120-day period or has made good-faith efforts to pay the rent in full during that period.
        (6) The court records relating to a supplemental
    
petition for possession filed under this subsection (h) against an occupant who is entitled to notice under item (5) of this subsection (h), or relating to a forcible entry and detainer action brought against an occupant who would have lawful possession of the premises but for the foreclosure of a mortgage on the property, shall be ordered sealed and shall not be disclosed to any person, other than a law enforcement officer or any other representative of a governmental entity, except upon further order of the court.
    (i) Termination of bona fide leases. The holder of the certificate of sale, the holder of the deed issued pursuant to that certificate, or, if no certificate or deed was issued, the purchaser at the sale shall not terminate a bona fide lease of a dwelling unit in residential real estate in foreclosure except pursuant to Article IX of this Code.

735 ILCS 5/15-1702

    (735 ILCS 5/15-1702) (from Ch. 110, par. 15-1702)
    Sec. 15-1702. Specific Rules of Possession. (a) Mortgagee's Rights. No mortgagee shall be required to take possession of the mortgaged real estate, whether upon application made by any other party or otherwise. Whenever a mortgagee entitled to possession so requests, the court shall appoint a receiver. The failure of a mortgagee to request possession or appointment of a receiver shall not preclude a mortgagee otherwise entitled to possession from making such a request at any future time. The appointment of a receiver shall not preclude a mortgagee from thereafter seeking to exercise such mortgagee's right to be placed in possession.
    (b) Designation of Receivers. Whenever a receiver is to be appointed, the mortgagee shall be entitled to designate the receiver. If the mortgagor or any other party to the foreclosure objects to any such designation or designations and shows good cause, or the court disapproves the designee, the mortgagee in such instance shall be entitled to make another designation.
    (c) Rights of Mortgagee Having Priority. If a mortgagee having priority objects to the proposed possession by a subordinate mortgagee or by a receiver designated by the subordinate mortgagee, upon entry of a finding in accordance with subsection (d) of Section 15-1702 the court shall instead place that objecting mortgagee in possession or, if a receiver is to be designated in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 15-1702, allow the designation of the receiver to be made by that objecting mortgagee.
    (d) Removal of Mortgagee in Possession. A mortgagee placed in possession shall not be removed from possession, and no receiver or other mortgagee shall be placed in possession except upon (i) the mortgagee's misconduct, death, legal disability or other inability to act, (ii) appointment of a receiver in accordance with subsection (a) of Section 15-1704 or (iii) a showing of good cause by a mortgagee having priority. A receiver shall not be removed solely on account of being designated by a mortgagee later determined not to have priority.
    (e) Determination of Priority. If the court is required to determine priority for the purposes of subsection (c) of Section 15-1702, a new determination shall be made each time a mortgagee is to be placed in possession or a receiver is to be appointed and shall be an interim determination which shall not preclude the court from making a contrary determination later in the foreclosure. If the court subsequently shall make such a contrary determination, a mortgagee in possession or acting receiver shall not be removed except in accordance with Part 17 of this Article.
    (f) Rights to Crops. With respect to any crops growing or to be grown on the mortgaged real estate, the rights of a holder of any obligation secured by a collateral assignment of beneficial interest in a land trust, the rights of a mortgagee in possession, or the rights of a receiver, including rights by virtue of an equitable lien, shall be subject to a security interest properly perfected pursuant to Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, where the holder of a collateral assignment, mortgagee in possession, or receiver becomes entitled to crops by obtaining possession on or after the effective date of this Amendatory Act of 1988.

    Sec. 15-1703. Mortgagee in Possession.
    (a) Powers and Duties. A mortgagee placed in possession of the real estate pursuant to Section 15-1701 or Section 15-1702 shall have:
        (1) such power and authority with respect to the real
    
estate and other property subject to the mortgage, including the right to receive the rents, issues and profits thereof, as may have been conferred upon the mortgagee by the terms of the mortgage or other written instrument authorizing the taking of possession;
        (2) all other rights and privileges of a mortgagee in
    
possession under law not inconsistent herewith; and
        (3) the same powers, duties and liabilities as a
    
receiver appointed for the real estate in accordance with this Article. If an order placing a mortgagee in possession is modified, revoked or set aside, the mortgagee shall not be liable for any damages to the extent such damages arise solely out of the fact that the mortgagor was removed from possession or that the mortgagee was placed in possession.
    (a-5) Notice to occupants.
        (1) Following the order placing the mortgagee in
    
possession of the mortgaged real estate, but no later than 21 days after the entry of such order, the mortgagee in possession shall make a good faith effort to ascertain the identities and addresses of all occupants of dwelling units of the mortgaged real estate.
        (2) Following the order placing the mortgagee in
    
possession of the mortgaged real estate, but no later than 21 days after the entry of such order, the mortgagee in possession shall notify all known occupants of dwelling units of the mortgaged real estate that the mortgagee has taken possession of the mortgaged real estate. The notice shall be in writing and shall:
            (i) identify the occupant being served by the
        
name known to the mortgagee in possession;
            (ii) inform the occupant that the mortgaged real
        
estate at which the dwelling unit is located is the subject of a foreclosure action and that control of the mortgaged real estate has changed;
            (iii) provide the name, address, and telephone
        
number of the individual or entity whom occupants may contact with concerns about the mortgaged real estate or to request repairs of that property;
            (iv) include the following language, or language
        
that is substantially similar: "This is NOT a notice to vacate the premises. You may wish to contact a lawyer or your local legal aid or housing counseling agency to discuss any rights that you may have.";
            (v) include the name of the case, the case
        
number, and the court where the foreclosure action is pending; and
            (vi) provide instructions on the method of
        
payment of future rent, if applicable.
        (3) The written notice required by item (2) of this
    
subsection (a-5) shall be served by delivering a copy thereof to the known occupant, or by leaving the same with some person of the age of 13 years or upwards, who is residing on or in possession of the premises; or by sending a copy of the notice to the known occupant by first-class mail, addressed to the occupant by the name known to the mortgagee in possession.
        (4) In the event that a mortgagee in possession
    
ascertains the identity and address of an occupant of a dwelling unit of the mortgaged real estate more than 21 days after being placed in possession of the mortgaged real estate pursuant to Section 15-1703, the mortgagee in possession shall provide the notice required by item (2) of this subsection (a-5) within 7 days of ascertaining the identity and address of the occupant.
        (5)(i) A mortgagee in possession who fails to comply
    
with items (1), (2), (3), and (4) of this subsection (a-5) may not collect any rent due and owing from a known occupant, or terminate a known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent, until the mortgagee in possession has served the notice described in item (2) of this subsection (a-5) upon the known occupant. After providing such notice, the mortgagee in possession may collect any and all rent otherwise due and owing the mortgagee in possession from the known occupant and may terminate the known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent if the mortgagee in possession otherwise has such right to terminate.
        (ii) An occupant who previously paid rent for the
    
current rental period to the mortgagor, or other entity with the authority to operate, manage, and conserve the mortgaged real estate at the time of payment, shall not be held liable for that rent by the mortgagee in possession, and the occupant's tenancy shall not be terminated for non-payment of rent for that rental period.
        (6) Within 21 days of the order placing the mortgagee
    
in possession of the mortgaged real estate, the mortgagee in possession shall post a written notice on the primary entrance of each dwelling unit subject to the foreclosure action that informs the occupants that the mortgagee in possession is now operating and managing the mortgaged real estate. This notice shall:
            (i) inform occupant that the dwelling unit is the
        
subject of a foreclosure action and that control of the mortgaged real estate has changed;
            (ii) include the following language: "This is NOT
        
a notice to vacate the premises.";
            (iii) provide the name, address, and telephone
        
number of the individual or entity whom occupants may contact with concerns about the mortgaged real estate or to request repairs of the property; and
            (iv) provide instructions on the method of
        
payment of future rent, if applicable.
        (7)(i) The provisions of item (5) of this subsection
    
(a-5) shall be the exclusive remedy for the failure of a mortgagee in possession to provide notice to a known occupant under this Section.
        (ii) This Section shall not abrogate any right that a
    
mortgagee in possession may have to possession of the mortgaged real estate and to maintain a proceeding against an occupant of a dwelling unit for possession under Article IX of this Code or subsection (h) of Section 15-1701.
    (b) Fees and Expenses. A mortgagee in possession shall not be entitled to any fees for so acting, but shall be entitled to reimbursement for reasonable costs, expenses and third party management fees incurred in connection with such possession.

    Sec. 15-1704. Receivers.
    (a) Receiver. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (b), (c) and (d) of Section 15-1701, and except as provided in Section 15-1702, upon request of any party and a showing of good cause, the court shall appoint a receiver for the mortgaged real estate.

A receiver appointed pursuant to this Article shall have possession of the mortgaged real estate and other property subject to the mortgage during the foreclosure, shall have full power and authority to operate, manage and conserve such property, and shall have all the usual powers of receivers in like cases. Without limiting the foregoing, a receiver shall have the power and authority to:
        (1) secure tenants and execute leases for the real
    
estate, the duration and terms of which are reasonable and customary for the type of use involved, and such leases shall have the same priority as if made by the owner of the real estate; but, unless approved by the Court, the receiver shall not execute oil, gas or other mineral leases, or (even if otherwise allowed by law) leases extending beyond the time of the receiver's possession; provided, however, with respect to residential real estate leased by the receiver, nothing in this Section shall affect the legal rights of any lessee with respect to the safety and habitability of the residential real estate;

mortgaged real estate;
        (3) insure the mortgaged real estate against loss by

against the mortgaged real estate.
    (c) Duties. A receiver appointed pursuant to this Article must manage the mortgaged real estate as would a prudent person, taking into account the effect of the receiver's management on the interest of the mortgagor. A receiver may, without an order of the court, delegate managerial functions to a person in the business of managing real estate of the kind involved who is financially responsible, not related to the mortgagee or receiver and prudently selected. However, the receiver shall remain responsible to the mortgagor or other persons for the acts or omissions of such management agent. When fees are paid to such a management agent, the receiver's fees may be adjusted to the extent the court deems appropriate. In managing the mortgaged real estate and other property subject to the mortgage, a receiver or receiver's delegate, to the extent the receiver receives sufficient receipts from the mortgaged real estate, such other property or other sources, except to the extent ordered otherwise by the court:
        (1) shall maintain the existing casualty and
    
liability insurance required in accordance with the mortgage or applicable to the real estate and other property subject to the mortgage at the time the receiver took possession;
        (2) shall use reasonable efforts to maintain the real
    
estate and other property subject to the mortgage in at least as good condition as existed at the time the receiver took possession, excepting reasonable wear and tear and damage by any casualty;
        (2.5) shall accept all rental payments from an
    
occupant of the mortgaged property, and any payments from a third party or any rental assistance program in support of an occupant's housing;
        (3) shall apply receipts to payment of ordinary
    
operating expenses, including royalties, rents and other expenses of management;
        (4) shall pay any shared or common expense
    
assessments due to any association of owners of interests in real estate to the extent that such assessments are or may become a lien against the mortgaged real estate;
        (5) may pay the amounts due under any mortgage if the
    
mortgagee thereof is not a party in the foreclosure;
        (6) may carry such additional casualty and liability
    
insurance as is reasonably available and reasonable as to amounts and risks covered;
        (7) may make other repairs and improvements necessary
    
to comply with building, housing, and other similar codes or with existing contractual obligations affecting the mortgaged real estate;
        (8) may hold receipts as reserves reasonably required
    
for the foregoing purposes; and
        (9) may take such other actions as may be reasonably
    
necessary to conserve the mortgaged real estate and other property subject to the mortgage, or as otherwise authorized by the court.
    (d) Allocation of Receipts. Receipts received from operation of the real estate and other property subject to the mortgage by the receiver shall be applied in the following order of priority.
        (1) to reimbursement of the receiver for all
    
reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the receiver or the receiver's delegates;
        (2) to payment of insurance premiums authorized in
    
paragraph (1) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1704;
        (3) to payment of the receiver's delegates of any
    
reasonable management fees for managing real estate of the type involved;
        (4) to payment of receiver's fees allowed by the
    
court;
        (5) to payment of expenses authorized in paragraphs
    
(2), (3) and (4) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1704;
        (6) to payment of amounts authorized in paragraph (5)
    
of subsection (c) of Section 15-1704;
        (7) to payment of expenses authorized in paragraphs
    
(6) and (7) of subsection (c) of Section 15-1704; and
        (8) the balance, if any, shall be held or disbursed
    
as ordered by the court.
    (e) Non-Liability for Allocations. A receiver shall in no event be liable to any person for the allocation of, or failure to allocate, receipts to possible expenditures within the same priority category.
    (f) Notice to occupants.
        (1) Following an order appointing a receiver pursuant
    
to Section 15-1704, but no later than 21 days after the entry of such order, the appointed receiver shall make a good faith effort to ascertain the identities and addresses of all occupants of dwelling units of the mortgaged real estate.
        (2) Following an order appointing a receiver pursuant
    
to Section 15-1704, but no later than 21 days after the entry of such order, the appointed receiver shall notify all known occupants of dwelling units of the mortgaged real estate that the receiver has been appointed receiver of the mortgaged real estate. Such notice shall be in writing and shall:
            (i) identify the occupant being served by the
        
name known to the receiver;
            (ii) inform the occupant that the mortgaged real
        
estate at which the dwelling unit is located is the subject of a foreclosure action and that control of the mortgaged real estate has changed;
            (iii) provide the name, address, and telephone
        
number of the individual or entity whom occupants may contact with concerns about the mortgaged real estate or to request repairs of that property;
            (iv) include the following language, or language
        
that is substantially similar: "This is NOT a notice to vacate the premises. You may wish to contact a lawyer or your local legal aid or housing counseling agency to discuss any rights that you may have.";
            (v) include the name of the case, the case
        
number, and the court where the foreclosure action is pending; and
            (vi) provide instructions on the method of
        
payment of future rent, if applicable.
        (3) The written notice required by item (2) of this
    
subsection (f) shall be served by delivering a copy thereof to the known occupant, or by leaving the same with some person of the age of 13 years or upwards, who is residing on or in possession of the premises; or by sending a copy of the notice to the known occupant by first-class mail, addressed to the occupant by the name known to the receiver.
        (4) In the event that a receiver ascertains the
    
identity and address of an occupant of a dwelling unit of the mortgaged real estate more than 21 days after appointment pursuant to Section 15-1704, the receiver shall provide the notice required by item (2) of this subsection (f) within 7 days of ascertaining the identity and address of the occupant.
        (5)(i) A receiver who fails to comply with items (1),
    
(2), (3), and (4) of this subsection (f) may not collect any rent due and owing from a known occupant, or terminate a known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent, until the receiver has served the notice described in item (2) of this subsection (f) upon the known occupant. After providing such notice, the receiver may collect any and all rent otherwise due and owing the receiver from the known occupant and may terminate the known occupant's tenancy for non-payment of such rent if the receiver otherwise has such right to terminate.
        (ii) An occupant who previously paid rent for the
    
current rental period to the mortgagor, or other entity with the authority to operate, manage, and conserve the mortgaged real estate at the time of payment, shall not be held liable for that rent by the receiver, and the occupant's tenancy shall not be terminated for non-payment of rent for that rental period.
        (6) Within 21 days of appointment, the receiver shall
    
post a written notice on the primary entrance of each dwelling unit subject to the foreclosure action that informs occupants that the receiver has been appointed to operate and manage the property. This notice shall:
            (i) inform occupant that the dwelling unit is the
        
subject of a foreclosure action and that control of the mortgaged real estate has changed;
            (ii) include the following language: "This is NOT
        
a notice to vacate the premises.";
            (iii) provide the name, address, and telephone
        
number of the individual or entity whom occupants may contact with concerns about the mortgaged real estate or to request repairs of the property; and
            (iv) provide instructions on the method of
        
payment of future rent, if applicable.
        (7)(i) The provisions of item (5) of this subsection
    
(f) shall be the exclusive remedy for the failure of a receiver to provide notice to a known occupant under this Section.
        (ii) This Section shall not abrogate any right that a
    
receiver may have to possession of the mortgaged real estate and to maintain a proceeding against an occupant of a dwelling unit for possession under Article IX of this Code or subsection (h) of Section 15-1701.
    (g) Increase of rents. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, a receiver shall not charge an occupant of the mortgaged real estate a rental amount above that which the occupant had been paying for use and occupancy of the mortgaged real estate prior to the appointment of a receiver without leave of court. The court may allow an increase of rent if, upon motion by the receiver, the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence, that the increase of rent is necessary to operate, manage, and conserve the mortgaged real estate pursuant to this Section. A list of the current rents for each unit in the mortgaged real estate, and a list of the proposed rent increase for each of those units, must be attached to a motion for a rent increase under this subsection (g). All occupants of the mortgaged real estate who may be affected by the motion for a rent increase, if not otherwise entitled to notice, shall be notified in writing of the nature of the motion, the date and time of the motion, and the court where the motion will be heard. Such notice shall be by personal service or first-class mail. In the event that the receiver and an occupant of a dwelling unit agree to a rent increase for that dwelling unit, the receiver is excused from the requirements of this subsection (g) as to that dwelling unit. Nothing in this subsection (g) shall alter the terms of any lease agreement.
    (h) Removal. The court may remove a receiver upon a showing of good cause, in which case a new receiver may be appointed in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 15-1702 and subsection (a) of Section 15-1704.
