Sheriff Closer to Resuming Evictions

Sheriff Tom Dart placed moratorium on foreclosures last week

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said he's a step closer to ending his prohibition on foreclosure evictions, a move that grabbed national media attention last week.

Aiming to quell Dart's concern that renters might not get proper notice if the home in which they live enters foreclosure, Cook County judges on Tuesday began using a new court document for foreclosure evictions that specifically names tenants living at the foreclosed property and states how long they are allowed to remain in units -- the length of their lease or 120 days, whichever is shorter -- before deputies haul out their belongings.
