Kalouris Law Firm LLC
Residential leases are the best way to protect your property when renting to a tenant and they are also the best way to ensure a landlord is not taking advantage of a tenant. Our office can help ensure your lease is in compliance with Illinois law as well as Chicago ordinances regarding rentals. The best way to make sure you are protected is to have a lawyer help you write or review your paperwork so all the obligations and responsibilities are fully understood.
Commercial leases come with their own set of concerns that are different from the concerns of a residential lease. From mitigation of environmental contamination, to ensuring the space is being used for approved purposes, and even making sure the insurance coverage is appropriate for the property, you need an attorney with experience in commercial leases. Our lawyers have extensive experience in commercial leases and have the ability to decipher the legalese that often accompanies commercial leases.
If you are a landlord who a tenant who is violating their lease or a tenant whose landlord has not upheld their obligations of the lease, litigation might be the route you have to take. We can guide you through the process and even check to ensure that litigation is absolutely necessary. Often landlord and tenant disputes can be resolved with a couple calls to the proper entities, with no need for litigation. However, if litigation is the only option we will represent you zealously and efficiently to help resolve your case as soon as possible. We can help ensure the proper procedures have taken place prior to an eviction. We can also help ensure the landlord is following all appropriate measures as reuired by a lease.
Our office can create rental packages for both commercial and residential rentals. These packages can include a basic lease, appropriate notices required before proceeding with an eviction, as well as other documents like walk through checklists.
