Chicago, IL asked in Landlord - Tenant for Illinois

Q: I have a Landlord tenant question .... I have a landlord who is not cashing my late payments in a timely manor .

I need some legal advice . I have a Landlord who is not cashing late payments on rent in a timely manor . He is also not giving receipts for payments . I have noticed he only does this with late payments . When I pay rent on time my checks are normally cashed within a few days .... He has no office on site and you have to mail in your payment . What is my legal stance on this ??? I don’t like to pay late but it happens . There has to be a reason as to why he doesn’t cash late payments in a timely manor . One time he tried to say the mail was 3 weeks late which I highly doubt happened.
