CRLTO Amended – New section 5-12-101 imposes new bedbug education requirements

chibb2As part of the recently passed ordinance to address bedbugs in Chicago, the Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance was amended to add a new disclosure requirement for landlords.  Brand new section 5-12-101 (this is based on the proposed ordinance – we are still awaiting a copy of the officially published ordinance) institutes yet another new disclosure requirement and landlords (or their agents) must, prior to entering into or renewing a rental agreement, provide tenants with a “bed bug prevention and treatment” informational brochure prepared by the City of Chicago Department of Public Health.  I have reached out to the Department of Public Health and do not yet have a copy of the brochure.

UPDATE: 12/12/13 – We now have the brochure provided by the City of Chicago.
