Landlord won't return deposit

It's been 50 days since we moved out of our apartment and our landlord won't return my texts, emails, or phone calls about the deposit. I know he's receiving them because he answered my text immediately about transferring the gas bill. It is so frustrating that a landlord would do this! I know they are supposed to return the deposit within 45 days. Anyone else have to deal with this? From what I've read, the next step would be to fill out the paperwork at small claims court. Any other input?

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    Sorry...I forgot to mention that when you get your security deposit back, your landlord needs to give you interest earned as well. In Illinois, security deposits are required to be kept in an esgrow (sp?) account, which earns interest, which you are entitled to.
    I know after all of this and the headache you have been through, a few dollars probably do not matter, but I`m just sayin` :)

  • Aron Long tlme Lincoln sq home owner

    When you rent an apartment or condo it's good to take pictures when you move in and do the same when moving out .If there is no damage to the place then the landlord should return your deposit .

Pops for Champagne Brings 'Bom Bolla' to 1880s-Era Wicker Park Building

The venture, called Bom Balla, will be in a renovated 1880s-era building at 1501 N. Milwaukee Ave., on a strip that has become a hotbed for new restaurants.

Developer Steve Lipe, who began renovations on the 130-year-old building on the northeast corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Honore Street in February, said that Bom Bolla will be renting the entire 4,350 square-feet building.

On the opposite corner from the future Bom Bolla, Bayless opened his new Xoco restaurant at 1471 N. Milwaukee Ave. in August.

The wood-frame building — which gave a peek into the past when the vinyl siding was removed over the summer — is now covered with an iron gray siding that matches the gray brick on a newly constructed neighboring building at 1505 N. Milwaukee Ave.

In addition to Xoco, Bom Bolla will join many other new restaurants on the block: Umami Burger, 1480 N. Milwaukee Ave., Max's Wine Dive, 1484 N. Milwaukee Ave.; and Azzurra EnoTavola, 1467 N. Milwaukee Ave.

In addition to Xoco, Bom Bolla will join many other new restaurants on the block: Umami Burger, 1480 N. Milwaukee Ave., Max's Wine Dive, 1484 N. Milwaukee Ave.; and Azzurra EnoTavola, 1467 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Can anyone recommend someone to shovel snow for a private residence in Wicker Park?

  • We've been using Uri-Belt Landscaping for the past two years, and have just re-upped him for another year: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/fgs/4761426469.html
    They can be slow to get back to inquiries, but they are extremely prompt at clearing the snow, very reliable, and do an excellent job. If you contact them, please let them know that I referred you.

    Regards

  • NRS

    Thank you! I looked them up and this might be exactly what's needed. I will credit you for the referral.

Moonshine Closes in Wicker Park After 13 Year Run, Smoke Daddy Eyes Space

"We've had a good run, there's a lot of competition and it was best to let someone else take a stab at it," said John Sanchez, the owner of Moonshine at 1824 W. Division St., during a private final night for friends and family on Wednesday.

Moonshine's one-story standalone building and adjacent parking lot, about two blocks east of the Division and Damen avenues intersection, is owned by 4 Star Restaurant Group, which bought 1824 W. Division St. for $3.6 million in February, according to county records.

Smoke Daddy, just up the street at 1804 W. Division St, is part of the 4 Star Restaurant Group, a venture headed by Josh Rutherford, Mike and Doug Dunlay and Derek Rettell.

Looking for Parking Spot Hoyne Av & Rice St

Hello! I am looking for a spot close to the intersection of Hoyne Av. and Rice St.
Ideally would be at the Ice House Lofts (2101 W. Rice St) but anything around could also be a good option. Many Thanks!

  • Y_2_K I aspire to be who I am.

    I get the idea and convenience of parking on the street, but at the same time I've lived near the corner for awhile and have never had issue with parking. At most 1 block away.
