I have been renting out a 4 unit in South East Wisconsin since last August, I initially inherited tenants but now I have a vacancy. In my area there is quite a strong representation of Hispanic / Latino families. I myself am a Spanish speaker and so communicating with them is not a problem but I am looking for a lease agreement and application that I could use that are translated into Spanish. I would like to use these when qualified tenants apply to make things more formal and efficient. I currently use the application and lease agreement located on Bigger Pockets and that has worked well. If anyone can provide a copy or link to that would be much appreciated. I am open to tips, advice and suggestions for new tenants. Thank you.

If you were to need to go to court, wouldn't the lease best be in English? You could provide tenants a translated one for their convenience, but I would think it be best that the signed ones be in English.
I know it'd take a little bit of time, but could you take your current lease and transcribe it into Spanish?
@Nicole A. yes I would ideally have two copies, one english and one spanish have them sign both and keep copies of each
I would consider contacting Wisconsin Legal Blank they offer legal docs for rentals that are up to date with current state laws. I know they carry forms in Spanish but I can't find them on their new website. I've seen them on their website and at conventions before.
I have translated applications and also have a contract in spanish for Texas. But It is a copy from TREC and is not legal. I think you should have a spanish copy just for information purposes and keep using the original english
@Fabian Toledo M yes that is the plan have two copies the spanish would just be courtesy and informational
@Corina Eufinger thank you I will look in to it
Hi can anyone upload or share the agreement I need a Spanish/English conversion also, so by law we know they understand the agreement.
