State Specific Question About: ILLINOIS (IL)

My tenants moved out and left my house in bad shape, I'm trying to figure out how to itemize the damages. When they moved in I had them sign a form "Move Out Charges" and it has a break down of what we charge for different damages or repairs. Would this be enough to use if I go line by line and add up the total covered charges and than deduct that total from their SD? Everything I've read states I need to supply receipts for repairs but I'm doing most of the repairs that are covered in this form. I have pictures to back all the damage claims. Also if anyone has a form I can use to itemize these fee, I would be grateful

I don't think there is any special form you need to use. Just list on a paper all of the repairs that are needed, with the cost of each one. Then, total them up.

You said you have photos -- that is the most important part!

And do the SD accounting on time!
