Check the lease, check the lease, check the lease. If there is no lease, then provide your 30 day notice and find greener pastures elsewhere.

Check your lease. You need to stay until lease expiration and/or you may have to give 30 days notice to move. If you don't have to give notice, as long as you are out by the first of the month, you usually don't need to pay. But most leases require notice unless it is the end of the lease. Rent is usually do for a whole month. Landlords typically don't prorate rent. But you just never know. Talk to your landlord and ask what you can negotiate.

Did your landlord give you notice of increased rent? Do you have a Lease? maybe your landlord will let you out, or if you are not on a lease you would still have to give a 30 day notice. Even if you move after 10 days you still have to pay the full months rent.

If you have a lease the rent cannot be raised until after the end of the lease. If the lease is over and you are just on a month to month lease, then the landord must give you 30 days notice before any increase can take affect. That 30 day notice must be from the 1st of any month to the 1st of the next month. During that 30 day time frame you can move with no penalty and you are entitled to your security deposit back.
If the landlord just told you that the rent is going up today....the 6th, then that increase cannot go into affect until 2/1/12.......30 days from the 1st to the 1st.
Read your lease. Call the city of CHicago if the landlord does not give your security deposit back. There are huge penalities for not following the rules and it will not cost you a penny.....just some paperwork.
