My landlord says if he does REPAIRS he'll have to RAISE my RENT (month to month lease agreement) we've had for the past four years. My back stairs broke and I repaired them and paid for materials....my backdoor has been broken for over two years and he's not fixed it. What should I do?

One of the disadvantages of being a month-to-month tenant is that your landlord can raise your rent monthly. If you are covered by the RLTO (you probably are) you have many rights and remedies. You should contact a Chicago landlord-tenant attorney for a full review of your lease and tenancy.
