Basics of Landlord-Tenant Law in Cook County


CVLS is recruiting and training a new generation of attorneys to assist and advise individuals who are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In one of these new projects, CVLS volunteers will assist landlords who can’t pay their bills without rent. In our first training in this new series, experienced housing attorney and CVLS volunteer Wayne Shapiro and Staff Attorney Martin Cozzola will cover the rights and responsibilities of landlords and an overview of the eviction process, including recent permanent changes to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 139 and Chicago’s Fair Notice Ordinance.
