Resources for Tenants and Landlords

These self-help resources are informational only.  They are not legal advice. 

Eviction Fundamentals

Landlord/Tenant Mediation

Eviction Resolution Program

A new Eviction Resolution Program has been created in the 18th Judicial District.  This program can assist landlords and tenants by providing information about the eviction court process and connecting individuals to services in the community that may be able to help. This could include mediation, which is a chance for a tenant and landlord to work with a neutral party to reach an agreement. 

Learn basic information about court and the local eviction court process.
