Local law cannot supercede state law, though.


I am somewhat familiar with Chicago residential leases. Chicago has
specific laws for residential leases. New York City does as well (remember
"rent control"). Probably these laws cover things that are not addressed by
state law. I think its very typical for a "big city" to have such laws.
