Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

815 ILCS 705/7

    (815 ILCS 705/7) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 1707)
    Sec. 7. Sale by franchisee and extension or renewal of existing franchise. There shall be exempted from the provisions of Sections 5, 10, 11, 13 and 15 of this Act the offer or sale of a franchise by a franchisee for its own account if the sale is not effected by or through a franchisor. A sale is not effected by or through a franchisor merely because a franchisor has a right to approve or disapprove a different franchisee or requires payment of a reasonable transfer fee or requires the new franchisee to execute a franchise agreement on terms not materially different from the existing franchise agreement.
    There shall be exempted from the provisions of Sections 5, 10, 11, 13 and 15 of this Act the extension or renewal of an existing franchise or the exchange or substitution of a modified or amended franchise agreement where there is no interruption in the operation of the franchise business by the franchisee.
