In Chicago, Illinois, I received my $1,000 security deposit from my former landlord but did not receive my one-month advance rent payment of $1,600. He sold the apartment, and the new owner refused to refund my one-month advance rent payment of $1,600. Is the new owner liable for that payment?

That depends on the agreement between them, but as a general rule no. You should have a lawyer review your written lease with the former owner. Call me at (312) 372-5600 to discuss further.
