If any provision, clause, sentence, paragraph, section, or part of this Article or application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, for any reason, be adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unconstitutional or invalid, said judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of this Article and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances, but shall be confined in its operation to the provision, clause, sentence, paragraph, section, or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered and to the person and circumstances affected thereby.

Pursuant to Cook County RTLO Section 42-810(I), a tenant can terminate their lease if the landlord fails to attach the new Cook County RTLO Summary to leases and renewals.  However, the tenant must first give the landlord a written notice of the landlord’s breach of the section AND that the landlord “must cure that breach within two business days”.  If the landlord misses the two (2) day deadline, the tenant can terminate the lease and recover the penalty of $200.00 from the Landlord.
