When you receive your rental agreement, renewal, or oral lease, you must receive an official RLTO Summary.
The official RLTO Summary is four (4) pages with the City of Chicago city seal and Rahm Emanuel’s name at the top. If you didn’t get these exact four (4) pages – you didn’t get the legal RLTO Summary.
Landlords tend to use their own forms and may be writing their own interpretation of the law, thus omitting important sections that outline RLTO rights in the Summary.
Tenants whose Landlords violate this section may legally terminate their lease and recover $100.00 pursuant to RLTO Section 5-12-170.
