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.
