Experienced Guidance with Landlord and Tenant Disputes in DuPage and Cook Counties

Whether you are a landlord renting your property to tenants or vice versa, issues can arise that can strain the relationship between the two parties. Many times, these types of disputes can be worked out on their own. In some cases, however, the parties are unable to resolve their issues, making legal action necessary. When this occurs, it is best to have an experienced attorney in your corner who has in-depth knowledge of landlord and tenant issues.

For over three decades, the Law Office of Vincent C. Machroli, P.C. has helped clients with landlord-tenant disputes in Cook County, DuPage County, and all other counties throughout the Chicagoland area. We have extensive experience representing both sides in these types of disputes, and we have a thorough understanding of the common legal issues that most often arise. Our office is well-organized, responsive, and detail-oriented. We work closely with our clients to provide the highly-personalized representation they deserve.

Tenant Services in DuPage County

When you are a renter, you are essentially at the mercy of your landlord to keep the property in livable condition. While most landlords make a reasonable effort to keep up their property, some do not. For example, if the property you are renting has mold or is in need of serious repairs and your landlord refuses to take action, you may need a legal advocate to "encourage" your landlord to do the right thing. Another common issue for tenants is getting their security deposit back after moving out. You are entitled to receive your deposit if you left the property in the same condition as when you moved in (minus normal wear and tear). If your landlord has not followed all the required legal procedures and still refuses to give you back your deposit, you may be entitled to damages.

Landlord Evictions in Cook County

Being a property owner in Cook County can be very frustrating. The city of Chicago has the Chicago Residential and Tenant Ordinance (RLTO), a series of provisions that are highly favorable to tenants, and can subject landlords to fines and even court costs and attorney fees. Some of the suburbs have similar ordinances, making it very difficult for landlords to evict tenants who are not paying rent or are otherwise in violation of the terms and conditions of the lease. Our law office is well-versed on the Chicago RLTO and the ordinances in other local municipalities, and we help guide landlords through the complicated procedures required to lawfully evict problem tenants.
