Moving? I've got boxes!!

Hi RPers

I just moved and I have a lot of boxes of various sizes to give away. They are sturdy, and many of them have tops, since they are printer paper boxes.

I'll recycle them if I get no responses here, but I'd rather they get some more use and I know it's a big season for moving right now.

So, if you want them, feel free to reply here and we can work out details.

Thanks,

J.

  • I'm very interested!
    Please email me when and where I can pick them up.

Henry Woo and Bed Bugs

Have any of you dealt with a landlord named Henry Woo (who operates as Lundan Partners or Hinman Partners)? I live in his building at 1154 W Lunt & I'm having a difficult time getting him to deal with a bed bug infestation over the last month.
I have a severe allergic reaction to them (worst my dermatologist has ever seen). I've taken lots of photos of the bites & the bugs & even have specimens in a jar. Not...

Have any of you dealt with a landlord named Henry Woo (who operates as Lundan Partners or Hinman Partners)? I live in his building at 1154 W Lunt & I'm having a difficult time getting him to deal with a bed bug infestation over the last month.
I have a severe allergic reaction to them (worst my dermatologist has ever seen). I've taken lots of photos of the bites & the bugs & even have specimens in a jar. Not posting the pics bc they're gross but if you wanna see em... I sent them all to Henry, but he still had the gall last week to ask me if I was "sure" I had bed bugs.
Henry has 3 times sent unlicensed cut-rate "exterminators" to do a halfass spray job. The last time the guy came, he was literally only in my apt for 6 minutes. The problem hasn't been solved & I'm worried the bed bugs will spread to my neighbors. I've told Henry he needs to send a licensed PCO to use an Integrated Pest Management system as the city suggests but he's ignored me.
I sent a certified mail letter of intent to withhold rent to his PO Box, which he hasn't signed for. Today I tried to deliver the letter in person at a 2nd address found from some deep googling. A different Woo was listed on the doorbell, who wouldn't open the door or tell me where to find Henry. I slid the letter under the door just in case.
He's also stopped responding to my emails.
Now, my Super is saying he'll be in my building's office on Fri but I have to tell him in advance that I'm coming, which could just give him a chance to avoid me. But that's my next step.
I'm in touch with a lawyer & going to try spraying tomorrow myself, but if they're in the walls, they'll just come back.

If any of you know anything about Lundan Partners or Henry Woo or have advice on dealing with a terrible landlord, I'd really appreciate it.

PS. I don't really need any more advice on dealing with Bed Bugs themselves, I've gotten more than enough from my friends on Facebook.

    I also called Kevin at The Aldermans Office and he was very helpful to me. Again I hope that all is well now. Where we live I kind of became the advocate for the building and was told by staff that I'm a bad person to call and report the problem because they were being fined for not being compliant. Oh Well.

    Get in touch with Ann Hinterman at the alderman's office and officer Hardy at the 24th district police station.. But don't expect much. Give your landlord a two week notice saying f if he doesn't do something-which he is required to do by law-you will then have an exterminator come...

    Get in touch with Ann Hinterman at the alderman's office and officer Hardy at the 24th district police station.. But don't expect much. Give your landlord a two week notice saying f if he doesn't do something-which he is required to do by law-you will then have an exterminator come in and will deduct the cost from the next month's rent.. You can do this by law so if he tries to retaliate you can get a lawyer-hopefully pro bono-to set him straight. Also call Howard Area Community Center to see what other options they might suggest. GOOD LUCK!

Looking for a dog-friendly apt near Red/Brown line

My lease is up in Oct, but I'm starting my search early, because it's difficult to find a dog-friendly apartment. My dog is 12-years-old and I have cats.

I'm looking for a place that's a one bedroom plus another room with a door, be it a office/den/junior bedroom, etc. Zero carpeting is strongly preferred.

I'd really like an outdoor space where I can garden. I'll gladly help with landscaping, if the landlord could use the help.

I'd like to be...

I'd like to be within a 15 minute walk of either the red line or the brown line, with preference for the red line.

If you know of a landlord/building I can contact, please let me know. I've looked for apartments before in Chicago, so I know the websites to try and to walk around looking for "For Rent" signs.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    The building across the street from me has lots of resident dogs. There's even a fenced courtyard where tenants allow their dogs to play off leash. It's 3 blocks to the Howard el station and lots of buses and 2 blocks to the lake. I think other Becovic buildings also allow dogs.

Looking to buy 2- 3-flat in RP

Hi neighbors,

I have sold my condo, and I'm looking to buy a two or three flat in the Rogers Park area--preferably east, but flexible.

Inventory seems pretty low right now, but if any of you have a heads up on a place coming on the market I would love to hear about it!

Hi neighbors,

I have sold my condo, and I'm looking to buy a two or three flat in the Rogers Park area--preferably east, but flexible.

Inventory seems pretty low right now, but if any of you have a heads up on a place coming on the market I would love to hear about it!

In the meantime, since I may have to move out of here before I actually find a building to buy, I am also looking for a dog friendly, reasonably priced studio or one bedroom to rent or sublet. Would appreciate any leads you have in that area as well.

I am a solidly employed, very responsible, reasonably quiet renter with good credit – if that helps. :-)

Thank you!

J.

    Will you go as far west as Damen (abt 1 1/2 blks east of Ridge)? If so, there's a beautiful house with a big yard that's split into an upstairs and downstairs apartment. I haven't been inside, but the outside looks great and I've seen pictures of the interior on...

    Will you go as far west as Damen (abt 1 1/2 blks east of Ridge)? If so, there's a beautiful house with a big yard that's split into an upstairs and downstairs apartment. I haven't been inside, but the outside looks great and I've seen pictures of the interior on Zillow and that looks really good too. I don't have a phone number, but I looked it up by its address and found its listing. 1946 W. Estes

    The block is very nice and there's often good street parking (mostly in day).

    Thanks for all your help, RP fam! Got my eye on a place and going through the inspection phase now! Very exciting, especially since the place is only a couple blocks away from where I am now! I can still frequent all my favorite RP haunts.

    Again, I appreciate all the useful comments. More soon!
