Checking up on Your Landlord
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to find out about your landlord? As in –does he/she get repairs done quickly; does he return security deposits, things like that. Well, in Champaign-Urbana there is a way–the Tenant Union. They keep track of complaints against landlords. They also give advice about renting.
Just keep in mind that you can’t keep everyone happy all of the time.
So, if you have a couple of places in mind, checking on the landlord can help you make your decision. Or you can talk to the Tenant Union before you make an appointment to see a place.
