Municipalities have adopted Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinances. These ordinances outline Tenant’s and Landlord’s rights in that specific City, Town or Village. Specifically, the Chicago Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance is a primary source for Tenant’s rights within the City of Chicago. It governs most rental properties within the city. Navigating and understanding these ordinances can be a stressful task. An experienced attorney, such as the ones at Gardi & Haught, Ltd. can help relieve this stress and advise you on your rights.
