Tenant Laws in Wisconsin

Many Wisconsin residents live in rented housing. It is important for tenants and landlords that the rules ensure that these rental transactions are carried out fairly. State law provides a legal framework for the relationship between landlords and tenants. Many disputes between landlords and tenants can be avoided if both parties understand their legal rights and obligations. The guide for landlords and tenants answers frequently asked questions about landlords` and tenants` rights and obligations in plain language. The guide is designed to help landlords and renters avoid common problems and resolve them when they arise. It is not a complete guide or a substitute for legal advice. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Commerce and Consumer Protection (DATCP) handles consumer complaints between landlords and tenants and includes owner-tenant guides on its website. For more information on eviction notices, visit the Tenant Resource Center website or the Milwaukee Justice Center`s Eviction Notice grid. The library resells some landlord/tenant notice forms.

Consumer Data Sheet: Tenants` Rights and Obligations How long does an eviction stay on WCCA (also known as CCAC)? The Tenant Resource Centre provides examples of tips for terminating a customer on their site. An eviction remains on WCCA between two years (released) and ten years (after expulsion/execution). Evictions due to seizures will not be posted on WCCA. DATCP`s Agricultural Resource Management Department has created a document that addresses issues related to pesticide use by landowners. Property managers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the requirements of the document before using pesticides, including insecticides, rodenticides, fungicides, herbicides and other products intended to kill living things. Since everyone`s situation is different, the library can`t advise you on the form you need.
