Tenant Rights

Have a problem with your landlord? We can help! No attorneys’ fees!

If you rent/lease an apartment, condominium or house in the State of Illinois, you have many rights. To protect those rights, you need an experienced attorney who is well-versed in the laws and procedures involving landlord-tenant relationships in the State of Illinois. At the Law Offices of Matthew W. Kiverts, we stand up for you—the tenant. We devote 100% of our practice to the protection of tenants’ rights and are able to do so at no cost to you. That’s right—the laws we work with allow us to collect our attorneys’ fees directly from the landlord, which means you will not have to pay us even a penny for our services.

• Failure to return a security deposit

• Failure to pay interest on a security deposit

• Commingling of a security deposit

• Failure to attach a security deposit summary to the lease in violation of the RLTO or other local ordinance, or provide a copy of a security deposit summary to a month-to month tenant
