Legal Action asked the court to cut the "record retention period to one year for most eviction cases and keep the retention period at twenty years only for evictions where the court orders a renter to pay money back to their landlord."
The Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision on this will affect all rental owners. The Apartment Association is filing a reply to Legal Action's Petition. The law firm that will draft the reply and appear on the industry’s behalf at the oral hearing estimates the cost to be $17,500.
So how can you help? You could join the Apartment Association, a group that, over the past 40 years, has spent more than half of its dues income on lobbying and court actions to secure the rights of legitimate rental owners. We also accept donations in any amount. Some larger owners who are members of the Association have made additional donations as they feel the issue is that important.
