Wisconsin Landlord Tenant Guide

9 Replies

To all my fellow Wisconsin landlords (or future landlords like myself):

I don't remember how I came across this article, but apparently the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection creates the guidelines for the Landlord-Tenant relationship. I figured this guide might be helpful for other landlords in Wisconsin. It does a good job of explaining how to handle application fees, security deposits, nonstandard rental provisions, the eviction process (5 day vs 14 day notice) and a lot more. Enjoy!

Thanks for posting Andrew! 

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection also puts out The Wisconsin Way - A Guide to Landlords and Tenants.  That is the more detailed version of the link Andrew provided, but is also a great link for any Wisconsin landlords to know about and bookmark for future use if needed.
