Session 1 – Wisconsin Law Basics

Landlord – tenant laws cannot only be confusing, but they are constantly changing. This course is designed to give landlords, tenants or anyone a basic understanding of landlord and tenant laws in Wisconsin. This course will include Wisconsin statutes under chapter 704 and Wisconsin administrative code 134. It will focus on basics of leases and lease forms, security deposits, repairs, rent, client tricks and answer ‘oodles’ of questions!

Session 2 – Wisconsin Law Enterprise

Landlord – tenant relationships are sometimes even more confusing than the laws we need to follow. This course session will focus on basics of correcting bad tenant behavior, keeping good tenants, notices-to-vacate, terminating a lease, permitted security deposit withholdings and more. There will be more examples than lecture.

Session 3 – Fair Housing and Companion ​​​Animals and Step-By-Step Guide to Eviction

Handling tenants with special needs that may include a companion animal AND evicting tenants are the two most difficult things a landlord needs to do, both legally and ethically. This course is designed to help with the legal aspects including defining a breach of lease, sending the proper notice and Marathon County’s small claims court procedures. This course will commence in the time period immediately after the tenant receives their notice-to-vacate.
