Fair Housing Legal Counseling & Education
LUCHA’s services provides clients with legal representation, housing-related information, problem-solving, community events, workshops and housing fairs to assist low- and moderate-income homeowners. Example: LUCHA represented a rental client as she fought for her rights under the Keep Chicago Renting Ordinance. The client’s landlord failed to inform the renter that the property was under foreclosure, and through no fault of her own, the client was forced to move due to the foreclosure process. Through LUCHA’s representation, the client was awarded $10,600 in moving assistance – money she was able to use to help her family regain housing stability!
