Renting in Des Plaines, IL

While most properties are owner-occupied, there are still plenty of homes and apartments for rent in Des Plaines.

The landlord is responsible for all necessary repairs to maintain the rental unit in a habitable condition, while the utilities are typically the renter’s responsibility unless otherwise defined by the lease. Illinois law doesn’t limit how much the landlord may ask as a security deposit, but it’s usually one month’s rent. Landlords may charge a reasonable fee for any delayed rent payments. Prior written notice is required for lease termination or any rent increases.
