Our tenant rights resources are now available on the go! If you have an apartment repair issue, a question about your lease, or just want to take pictures of your unit to protect your deposit, use our new web-app, Squared Away Chicago! Squared Away is Chicago’s first web application dedicated to elevating the communication between tenants and landlords. Our research has taught us that a timely, informed and respectful relationship between tenants and landlords elevates the dialogue and decreases unresolved problems, so visit www.squaredawaychicago.com and let your phone protect your home.
Below & to the right, you will find answers to tenants’ most frequently asked questions [FAQs] and supplemental materials, such as sample letters. If there are problems throughout much of your building, you may be best served by organizing in the building.
If you have additional questions or comments, please call our free Tenants Rights Hotline at 773-292-4988. The hotline is open Monday-Friday, from 1-5pm.
Questions have also been known to be answered in the comments section of any of our informational posts, linked below.
