Protecting the Rights of Tenants
The law affords tenants many protections. We will make sure your landlord is well aware of these protections in order to get your security deposit back as well as any interest owed. In some cases, we can even obtain additional damages. Every situation is different, which is why you should consult with our skilled tenant rights lawyer.
In Chicago residents have tenant rights under the Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance (RLTO). This includes many rental apartments. When a landlord fails to properly follow these ordinances, legal action can be taken. We will advise you as to all your options, whether discussing your security deposit matter directly with your landlord or taking them to court and fiercely advocating for you.
