In Illinois, property management activities that involve general administration, routine repairs, contracting for property maintenance, clean-up/turnaround, and paying general expenses do NOT require a license.
Issuing an advertisement of property for lease, showing a unit for rent or lease, negotiating lease or rental contract terms, maintaining security deposits, or handling rent payments DOES require a real estate brokers license.
