  • Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance (RLTO)

    The Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance (RLTO) outlines the rights and responsibilities of Chicago tenants and landlords.

We advise all students review this ordinance to become familiar with available rights and remedies in the renting process.
