Identifying Chicago’s Bad Landlords
Data published by the City of Chicago will help residents identify problem landlords and building owners with a history of building code violations. The data was made public as a result of the Eri’ana Patton Smith and Coleman/Clark Kids Tenant Protection Ordinance, which was approved by the city council in January 2015 to protect tenants from dangerous living conditions or irresponsible landlords. The dataset of bad landlords will be updated biannually, and the dataset of building code violators will be updated annually.
