Customer Question
I was referred to...

I was referred to your Legal Representation for Tenants from Tenants Rights Group.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

My question is, My January 2018 rent is due. I have not paid it yet. My landlord has filed an eviction notice and hired a lawyer to have me evicted from my current resident. I have lived at 9234 Sally Lane - Apt GW, Schiller Park, IL since August 27, 2013. She verbally said that she does not want me to sign a lease. If I pay $800 a month starting in January 2018, I can stay at this apartment. However, she has already filed an eviction notice to have me evicted. Should I pay my rent, or start looking for an apartment I can afford. I also wanted to mention that I am 56 years old. I am trying to find an apartment that will accommodate for people like myself that are over 55 years old and have a low income. I also would like to stay in Schiller Park.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet. I am still waiting for an answer. Every 1st Saturday of the month, they come to the building where I reside and do a preventive maintenance check for bugs or spiders. My landlord will be at my apartment this Saturday, January 6, 2018. I was told not to pay my rent since my landlord has already filed an eviction notice on me.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I would like to find an apartment that is within my budget of $600 to $650 a month and I can still live in Schiller Park, IL.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
