Owning a condominium can be beneficial, but it also presents challenges, especially in these tough economic times.
I am pleased to announce a unique series of workshops–“Condo Smarts”–that will help guide you through the myriad of challenges facing condominium owners.
We kick off the series on Thursday, July 18th with “Rent Your Condo without Headaches,” a workshop that examines the issues facing condominium owners who decide to rent their unit.
The workshop takes place this Thursday, July 18th, 7:00 p.m., at the Pottawattomie Park Fieldhouse, 7340 N Rogers (just west of the Metra tracks).
Before your rent your condo unit, make sure you understand what it takes to be a good landlord in the City of Chicago. Condo owners unable to sell their units often turn to renting out their units, assuming the responsibilities and burdens of property management without proper education.
Without proper landlord training and the support of your condo association, acting as an “unintentional landlord” can become stressful. This training is a must for condo owners with tenants and board members in buildings with renters.
Join landlord training experts Taft West of the Community Investment Corporation and Ebony Lucas of The Property Law Group to learn the ins and outs of renting a condo in Chicago. Topics covered include fair housing laws, proper tenant screening, and the Chicago Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance.
