A dark apartment building hallway

Sebastián Hidalgo for Injustice Watch

The hallway at Ellis Lakeview in Kenwood, where tenants want their landlord to replace the old carpet in their apartments and common areas, fix the elevators, and exterminate rodents and roaches.

Injustice Watch is investigating trends in evictions and building conditions in the private rental market in Chicago. The unprecedented legal protections and financial support offered to landlords and tenants during the Covid-19 pandemic have dwindled just as housing costs have increased. How has this impacted you?

We want to connect with more renters in Chicago to help inform and guide our reporting. Please answer the questions below in as much detail as you feel comfortable and let us know if we can follow up with you. You can also choose to reach out to one of us by phone or text if you’d prefer. We won’t publish your information without your permission.
