The Solution Center will provide continuing real estate education, continuing legal education, and will produce a commercial real estate centered podcast entitled: “Real Estate For Breakfast.” The Real Estate for Breakfast podcast is a Chicago centric commercial real estate podcast utilizing attorneys and real estate professionals to create thoughtful commentary on current real estate issues, helpful descriptions of common legal and business issues, and entertaining discussion. The Solution Center’s first event will be a cyber and data security symposium entitled “CYBER SECURITY: WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR MY BUSINESS?”, and will take place on December 14, 2016 from 3-6 p.m. at 311 S. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL. Please contact for further details. 

It’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month—are you #CyberAware? Experts estimate a 26% likelihood of a material data breach for most companies in the next 24 months. Preparation and readiness is key. Having a data loss and disaster recovery plans in place prior to a loss will aid you in the steps needed to be taken in the event of a loss. For more information on putting together data loss and disaster recovery plans, feel free to contact John Campbell at 312-554-3126.

LANDLORDS NEED TO BE AWARE OF BED BUGS! Recent amendments to the City of Chicago Municipal Code, including the Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance (“RLTO”), have placed new requirements and restrictions on both landlords and tenants with regard to the rising bed bug issue in Chicago.
The most immediate change is the requirement that all new residential leases and renewals entered into after the effective date of December 23, 2013 must include a copy of the City’s informational brochure on bed bug prevention and treatment prepared by the Department of Health.  The brochure that must be attached to all residential leases can be found in English, Spanish, Polish, or Chinese on the City of Chicago’s website.  The English version can be found at the link below.  This brochure should be included with City of Chicago leases along with the summary of the RLTO, the lead based paint brochure, and other required disclosures.
The amendments also require landlords to provide pest control services within ten days of written notice of an infestation from tenant.       
We will have more information regarding these requirements in one of our upcoming Newsletters. You can sign up for our newsletter at  If you have any questions regarding these issues, please do not hesitate to contact Robert D. Tepper at or 312-554-3100.

There was a recent appellate ruling (Stone Street Partners LLC vs. The City of Chicago Department of Administrative Hearings, 2014 IL App (12t) 123654), which requires attorneys to represent corporations (and presumably, limited liability companies) in administrative hearings. The rule for lawsuits has always been that a corporation must be represented by licensed legal counsel. But for years, i...ndividual managers and agents, who were not licensed attorneys, have appeared at 400 W. Superior to defend corporate landlords against building code violations (or other administrative hearings) and negotiate agreed fines. And for years, no one questioned the practice. The City of Chicago believed legal counsel was not required since the administrative process is designed to be faster, more efficient, and less costly than Circuit Court lawsuits. That was until now. Under the recent appellate ruling, the City can no longer discuss violations or negotiate settlements with non-attorneys. If counsel is not present, the City may seek a default judgment. We will have more information regarding this issue in our upcoming newsletter.

If you have any questions regarding these issues, please do not hesitate to contact Phillip N. Coover, at or 312-554-3103.

Our firm offers a wide breadth of experience and knowledge in all aspects of commercial real estate, including leasing, landlord/tenant matters, property management issues, evictions and collections, bankruptcy issues, lending, financing, licensing and acquisitions and dispositions.
