4.3   Financial Remedies.  In the event of any default, re-entry, expiration and/or dispossession by summary proceedings or otherwise, (i) the Rent shall become due thereupon and be paid up to the time of such re-entry, dispossession or expiration, together with such expenses Landlord may incur for legal expenses, lawyers fees, brokerage, and/or putting the Premises in good order; (ii) Landlord may re-let the Premises or any part or parts thereof; and/or (iii) Tenant shall also pay Landlord liquidated damages for his failure to observe and perform the covenants in this Lease.  Landlord may, at his sole option, hold Tenant liable for any difference between the Rent payable under this Lease during the balance of the Lease Term, and any rent paid by a successive Tenant if the Premises are re-let.  In the event that after default by Tenant Landlord is unable to re-let the Premises during any remaining term of this Lease , Landlord may at his option hold Tenant liable for the balance of the unpaid Rent under the Lease for the remainder of the Lease Term.

The service was very very good. I appreciated not having to pay to fill something in on line and not have complete access or only confusing access. I thought you price was very good. The materials were very help. I had to adjust the sample contract to reflect my special needs. I would recommend you and use you again.

I went through several websites looking for an apartment lease form for the state of Illinois. They all demanded information just short of blood type. They all represented themselves as "free". It was impossible to get cost (since it was free) until you had entered all the demanded info and then to be told there was a membership fee and a monthly charge. Now, I am concerned about the information they have. This site was straight forward, I was able to print the blank form immediately and it is a perfect fit for my needs. The cost was reasonable. This is the place to look for those forms that you need.
