    Like the above attorneys, I advise against getting the City or even an attorney involved unless all possible friendly means of getting him off the property don't work. Also, adverse possession requires more than two years of use.

    You can also Google "Free legal service Chicago." There are not-for-profits in Chicago and the suburbs that may be able to help you either for free or for a reduced fee. Good luck.

    I agree with the previous answer; try to negotiate a 1-2 month extension with the landlord. The two of you can execute a simple rider to your existing lease stating that there is an extension and any new terms (such as an increase in rent) that will be in place for the length of the extension. Good luck.
