Sorry to hear that you lost your property. Generally the property should be vacated by 30 days from the confirmation order. If not, the new owner can ask the sheriff to evict you. Keep in mind, Illinois is not a self-help state. No one has a right to evict you except the sheriff. Also, you have no obligation to let anyone into the property during your stay. If you feel that you need more time, you have to get a court order extending the time of possession. Good Luck.


You technically do not have to leave until the Sheriff evicts, the difficult part is knowing when the deputies will show up.
