1    AN ACT concerning local government.
2    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3represented in the General Assembly:
4    Section 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the Rent
5Control Act.
6    Section 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds that:
7        (1) There is a significant shortage of safe,
8    affordable, and healthy rental housing in the State of
9    Illinois, especially for hundreds of thousands of
10    lower-income Illinois renters. One-third of Illinoisans,
11    or nearly 1,600,000 Illinois households, depend on rental
12    housing.
13        (2) The rate at which rents have increased in the State
14    of Illinois has continued to outpace the increase in
15    Illinoisans' real wages, resulting in an increasing rent
16    burden borne by Illinois households, especially vulnerable
17    populations. This growing burden threatens the quality and
18    stability of housing available to Illinois renters.
19        (3) Many Illinois households who depend on rental
20    housing are low-income and are rent-burdened, meaning that
21    they pay more than 30% of their income on rent.
22    Additionally, some of these households are severely
23    cost-burdened, meaning that they must devote more than 50%



HB2192- 2 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1    of their income to paying rent, leaving little for other
2    household necessities such as health care, education,
3    vocational training, transportation, or utilities.
4        (4) An inability to find affordable housing negatively
5    impacts tenants' economic stability, health and
6    well-being, and capacity to participate in their
7    communities. A lack of stable housing may limit a parent's
8    ability to maintain employment, a child's capacity to
9    succeed at school, and, for lower-income families,
10    potential to escape the cycle of poverty.
11        (5) Tenants' inability to find and retain affordable
12    housing results in increased rates of involuntary
13    displacement, eviction, and property turnover, creating
14    additional burdens for landlords and property owners,
15    social service agencies, units of local government, and the
16    judicial system, as well as renter households.
17        (6) Regional boards and local communities are best
18    positioned through collaborative administration to
19    implement rent control and address barriers to affordable
20    housing in their communities.
21    Section 10. Purpose. The purpose of this Act is to promote
22the maintenance and expansion of the supply of affordable
23rental housing in the State of Illinois by establishing a
24system of rent control. This Act is designed to ensure that
25rent increases match general economic trends and tenants'



HB2192- 3 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1ability to pay by enacting rent stabilization. The system of

4disrupted by tenants moving into or out of a particular unit or
5a change in the ownership or management of a particular unit.

4        (1) A board may change the rent stabilization rate no
5    more than once every 12 months. The change in rent
6    allowable by the rent stabilization rate shall not be
7    greater than the change in the consumer benchmark for the
8    same 12-month period.
9        (2) No more often than once every 12 months, upon 90
10    days' written notice, a landlord may increase the rent for
11    a dwelling unit in which a tenant resides by a rate no
12    greater than the rent stabilization rate currently in
13    effect. A landlord may not increase the rent more often
14    than once every 12 months or at a rate greater than the
15    rent stabilization rate then in effect regardless of
16    whether a tenant moves out of or is otherwise displaced
17    from the dwelling unit, another tenant moves into the
18    dwelling unit, or ownership or management of the dwelling
19    unit has changed. If a landlord has not increased the rent
20    within 12 months before a tenant moves into the dwelling
21    unit, the landlord may only increase the rent to the extent
22    allowed by the rent stabilization rate currently in effect.
23        (3) A landlord who has not paid a rent control
24    registration fee within the past 12 months for a particular
25    dwelling unit may not increase the rent charged for the



HB2192- 13 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1    dwelling unit until the landlord pays in full the rent
2    control registration fee currently due for the dwelling
3    unit.
4        (4) A board shall enact regulations that require
5    landlords to create and maintain a reserve account for
6    repairs and capital improvements. A landlord must deposit,
7    at least monthly, 10% of the landlord's rent proceeds,
8    after monthly expenses are paid, into the reserve account.
9    A landlord shall not be liable for failure to create and
10    maintain a reserve account in conformity with this
11    paragraph if the owner of the dwelling unit owns no more
12    than 12 dwelling units, occupies one dwelling unit as the
13    owner's principal residence, and charges rents that on
14    average do not exceed the applicable median area rent.
15    Section 40. Small Rental Property Owner Repairs and
16Improvement Fund.
17    (a) Each board shall establish a Small Rental Property
18Owner Repairs and Improvement Fund supported by the rent
19control registration fee that provides financial support in the
20form of grants, zero-interest loans, or low-interest loans to
21owners who own no more than 12 dwelling units in the region
22subject to the board's oversight, at least one of which is
23occupied by the owner as the owner's principal residence, who
24seek to conduct capital improvements or significant repairs
25that would bring one or more dwelling units into material



HB2192- 14 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1compliance with habitability and healthy homes standards. To be
2eligible to receive financial support through the Small Rental
3Property Owner Repairs and Improvement Fund, the owner must not
4charge rents that exceed the applicable median area rent.
5    (b) When considering and prioritizing applications for the
6Small Rental Property Owner Repairs and Improvement Fund, the
7board may prioritize, among other factors, applications from
8landlords who:
9        (1) have not increased rent within the past 12 months;
10        (2) have paid the rent control registration fee for the
11    current year;
12        (3) have not previously received funding from the Small
13    Rental Property Owner Repairs and Improvement Fund;
14        (4) have maintained a reserve account for maintenance
15    and repairs;
16        (5) lack insurance coverage for the repairs to be
17    conducted;
18        (6) have encountered unexpected repairs that
19    significantly reduce the habitability, health, or safety
20    of the dwelling; or
21        (7) meet other criteria as the board shall require.
22    Section 45. Home rule unit exemption and preemption.
23    (a) A home rule unit may exempt itself from coverage of
24this Act by enacting a rent stabilization regime that includes:
25        (1) a board, commission, department, agency,



HB2192- 15 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1    committee, or other body to oversee implementation and
2    enforcement of the local rent stabilization regime, if such
3    entity is publicly accountable, subject to the
4    requirements of the Open Meetings Act and Freedom of
5    Information Act, transparent in its proceedings, and
6    solicitous of public input and participation;
7        (2) a system for determining the maximum rate by which
8    rents are permitted to increase within the home rule unit
9    that provides adequate assurance that rents will remain
10    affordable for a sufficient number of lower-income and
11    middle-income renter households and will not increase at a
12    rate significantly greater than real growth in
13    lower-income and middle-income consumers' spending power,
14    as measured by a reputable objective standard;
15        (3) a system for enforcing adherence to the local
16    stabilization regime that includes public and private
17    enforcement mechanisms and remedies not less than those
18    provided by this Act;
19        (4) definitions of dwelling, dwelling unit, and tenant
20    covered by the local rent stabilization regime that are not
21    less inclusive than the definition of dwelling, dwelling
22    unit, and tenant established by this Act; and
23        (5) a system for collecting and publishing data on rent
24    trends, average rent, and evictions.
25    (b) A home rule unit may not regulate rentals of dwelling
26units in a manner inconsistent with this Act. This Act is a



HB2192- 16 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of
2the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home
3rule units of powers and functions exercised by the State.
4    Section 50. Private enforcement.
5    (a) A landlord who is found liable in a judicial or
6administrative proceeding, including an eviction action, to a
7tenant of a dwelling unit for charging an amount of rent for
8that dwelling unit in excess of that allowed under this Act
9must pay the prevailing tenant damages equal to 3 times the
10total monthly rent charged, together with the actual damages,
11the tenant's costs, and reasonable attorney's fees.
12    (b) It is an affirmative defense and counterclaim in any
13eviction action that the landlord has charged rent in excess of
14the amount allowed under this Act.
15    (c) No landlord may terminate or threaten to terminate a
16tenancy, refuse to renew a tenancy, increase rent, or decrease
17services for a dwelling unit on the ground that the tenant has
18complained to the landlord, a governmental authority,
19community organization, or media organization of a violation of
20this Act, or worked collectively to organize a tenant
21association or other group to advocate for the tenant's rights
22under this Act. A provision in a rental agreement or other
23agreement or understanding purporting to waive the protection
24provided by this subsection is void and unenforceable. If a
25landlord is found to have acted in violation of this



HB2192- 17 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1subsection, the tenant shall be entitled to recover damages in
2the amount of 3 times the monthly rent charged, together with
3the tenant's actual damages, the tenant's costs, and reasonable
4attorney's fees. In an action brought under this subsection,
5the tenant may also seek to recover possession of the dwelling
6unit or terminate the rental agreement.
7    Section 95. Applicability. This Act may be enforced only
8against landlords who hold dwelling units out for rent. A board
9may only prescribe regulations applicable to its region,
10excluding home rule units that have been validly exempted from
11coverage under subsection (a) of Section 45.
12    Section 100. Prohibition of waiver. The provisions of this
13Act may not be waived, and any term of any rental agreement,
14contract, or other agreement that purports to waive or limit a
15tenant's substantive or procedural rights under this Act is
16contrary to public policy, void, and unenforceable.
17    Section 105. Cumulative rights, obligations, and remedies.
18The rights, obligations, and remedies set forth in this Act are
19cumulative and in addition to any others available at law or in
21    Section 110. Severability. The provisions of this Act are

22domestic partner, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, or
23grandchild may occupy the premises as that person's principal
24residence for a period of no fewer than 24 continuous months.

HB2192- 28 -LRB101 08475 AWJ 53552 b

1premises within 3 months after the original lessee vacates the
2unit. The lessor must provide the lessee with written notice of
3no fewer than 120 days that the lessor intends to occupy the
4premises before the lessor may terminate the lease. The notice
5shall be dated and shall identify the date, at least 120 days

4vacant and available, that unit may be made available to the
5original lessee at a substantially similar rental rate as the
6lessee's current lease. The lessee may reject this substitute
7unit without prejudice to the lessee's rights to notice and
8relocation assistance.
9    (b) Significant repairs. If the lessor in good faith seeks
10to recover possession of the premises in order to comply with
11an order from a governmental authority to vacate the premises,
12or seeks to recover possession in order to substantially
13rehabilitate, remodel, or repair the premises, which,
14according to a professional licensed to conduct such
15rehabilitation, remodeling, or repairs, will render the
16premises not reasonably fit for residential use for the

4lessee may reject the lessor's offer of a replacement unit
5without prejudicing the lessee's right to relocation
6assistance. If the lessee prevails on a claim that the lessor
7did not act in good faith in seeking to recover possession
8under this subsection, the lessor shall be liable for twice the
9relocation assistance that would be due to the lessee had the
10lessor acted in compliance with the requirements of this
11subsection, together with the lessee's reasonable attorney's
12fees and costs.

14intends to recover possession of the premises to demolish or
15permanently remove the premises from residential use, the
16lessor must provide the lessee with no less than 90 days'
17written notice of his or her intent before the lessor may
18terminate the lease. The notice shall be dated and shall
19identify the date, at least 120 days after the notice is
20served, on which the lessee's tenancy is terminated. The notice
21shall also state that the lessee is entitled to relocation
22assistance in the amount of $3,000 or 3 months' rent, whichever

9relocation assistance originally due to the lessee. If the
10lessee prevails on a claim that the lessor failed to pay
11relocation assistance required by this Section, the lessee
12shall be entitled to recover the lessee's reasonable attorney's
13fees and costs. Failure to pay relocation assistance shall
14constitute an affirmative defense and counterclaim to any
15action initiated under the Rent Control Act.

11in exchange for receiving partial payment. To prevent
12invalidation, the notice must prominently state:
13    "Only FULL PAYMENT of the rent demanded in this notice will
14waive the landlord's right to terminate the lease under this
15notice, unless the landlord agrees in writing to continue the
16lease in exchange for receiving partial payment."
17    Tender of past rent due after the filing of a suit and
18before trial for eviction or ejectment pursuant to failure of
19the tenant to pay the rent demanded in the notice shall
20invalidate the suit if the rent then due is tendered prior to
21trial being had in the suit for eviction or ejectment.
