UPDATE: Cook County Section 8 amendment

sec8updateOn May 8, 2013, the Cook County Board will once again take up the topic of amending the Human Right’s Ordinance to make it a fair housing violation (for source of income discrimination) for a Cook County landlord to refuse to participate in the Section 8 housing choice voucher program.  The Illinois Rental Property Owners Association and the Northern Illinois Commercial Association of Realtors are vehemently opposed to the amendment and are calling upon landlords to urge the Cook County Commissioners to defeat the amendment.

      Lynette – we do not represent tenants. I cannot assist you with this. Evictions are a very serious matter. Contact a tenant’s rights attorney at once to learn and protect your rights.
