Nationally, rents are so far above wages that of the 3,141 counties in the United States, in only four of them can a person making minimum wage afford a one-bedroom apartment.
It is happening across the country, but the once flourishing suburbs of Chicago are being hit hardest in the nation: The RENT INCREASES and landlords can legally hold a deposit. Of course, this has been the law of the land for some time. Problem is, today as wages are not increasing, social security benefits have a "fake rise" and businesses continue to fold- tenants find themselves "stuck" in a rental that rises in rent... and the only way they can move is by using security deposit money to move, which is wrapped into their current dwelling. THE EFFECTS OF RENTAL INCREASES ACROSS THE NATION ARE HURLING LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS DEEPER INTO POVERTY.

In many cases (not all) the people that are using the Legal Aid system are "playing the system" via ripping off the system while they are ripping off private citizens who own homes.

Today we shall present another distinction of our "law study groups"; this study group is titled: "Landlord Law Clinic".
During this study session we shall introduce the topics of "contracts".
We shall study the definition of a "contract" the elements of a contract, and the different types of contracts.
During this study session we offer no legal advice. Those who seek professional legal advice should seek help online, the yellow or white pages, or as a friend for a referral. Our purpose here is to study the law in the hopes that landlords shall become more legally aware.
We shall also study how we can use contracts to prevent people from squatting.
Here is a very important point, you should factor in the "Hegelian Dialectic" in your study of contracts.

Many people believe that there is such a "legal term" as "squatters rights"............squatters rights is basically a urban myth. However many home owners, landlords, and last but not least many squatters BELIEVE in the hype as squatters rights as a valid legal concept.
Believing in non existant legal concepts can cost the ignorant money and time. As the saying goes "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance".
In this this podcast of It's My House" we shall discuss a few "legal myths" and where can you go to check the facts.
Hosts Brian Roth and Matt Levi discuss the pros and cons of moving to the Big Apple/already living in Manhattan. Attorney Levi addresses the legal side of renting, and Roth talks about his fall down drunk upstairs neighbor.

Most renters that a landlord takes in are good, however there is the unholy person who is the tenant from hell. Many times these predators will commit crimes to avoid paying you rent and to buy time to stay longer in your house or apartment building. The very bold ones will attempt to steal your real estate away from you via "House Hijacking" or "Building Hijacking".
Many of these crimes are not reported to the proper authorities, because most landlords or your basic home owner does not recognize "tenant crimes".
In this epidsode of "It's My House", we shall make you aware of the various "tenant/renter" crimes that do exist and what to do to turn the tables on renters who turn out to be criminals.
Tenant criminals are the walking dead and they will drain the life out of you, if you do not know how to fight them.
