Landlord & Tenant Law
Landlord-Tenant Law Attorney | Chicago
Landlord-tenant law can be particularly complicated in Chicago, due in part to the contentious Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance, a regulation which gives powerful rights to tenants. In fact, if tenants are victorious in disputes with landlords, landlords may be required to pay the tenants’ legal fees. Thus if a landlord is lacking competent legal representation, seemingly simple evictions can wind up costing them thousands of dollars.
