Verified Answer, Affirmative Defense(s) and Counterclaim(s)

In Chicago eviction courts, the tenant need not file an answer unless required to do so by the Court. Most often, tenants' attorneys choose to file a responsive pleading (an Answer), and further allege Affirmative Defenses and Counterclaims. In Chicago and Illinois, counterclaims must be "Germane", or related to the issue of possession of the apartment or residential tenancy. This is "a" form of such a pleading in response to the complaint of the landlord who has filed an eviction.
