Dear Landlord or Manager:
There are several problems in my apartment that I would like you to take care of.
These problems make my apartment not reasonably fit and habitable and are violations
of the Chicago Residential Landlord-Tenant Ordinance (or my lease agreement). Therefore, I
am requesting that you remedy this problem within 14 days. Otherwise, under the law, my
lease will terminate at the end of that 14 day period. The deadline is
. I will
then vacate the premises within 30 days thereafter.
Thank you.
Remember to make copies and send by certified mail.
