Unlike the vast majority of Illinois cities and municipalities, Chicago’s Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance contains stringent provisions that require strict landlord compliance. 

On January 25, 2021, the Cook County Board of Commissioners passed a county-wide version of the Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance that mirrors Chicago’s ordinance.

Both ordinances regulate security deposits and provide for statutory damages and attorney’s fees for landlord noncompliance. Additionally, both ordinances delineate landlord and tenant obligations and remedies. 

Beginning June 1, 2021, the Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance will apply to all properties located in Cook County.
