What you will learn at the Apartment Association’s 2018 Landlord Boot Camp
Landlord Boot Camp covers everything that you need to know about residential Landlord Tenant law in Wisconsin, as amended in March 2012 by Act 143, in March 2014, in March 2016 with the passage of ACT 176, and again in March 2018 with ACT 317 including:
- How to properly screen prospective tenants
- How to draft written screening criteria to assist you in the selection process
- How to comply with both federal and state Fair Housing laws including how to comply with “reasonable modifications” and “reasonable accommodations” requests
- How to legally reject an applicant
- What rental documents you should be using and why
- When you should be using a 5-day notice versus a 14-day notice, 28-day notice, or 30-day notice and how to properly serve the notice on your tenant The Wisconsin Eviction Notices have changed and improved under Act 176, enacted in March 2016
- Everything you wanted to know (and probably even more than you wanted to know) about the Residential Rental Practices (ATCP 134) and how to avoid having to pay double damages to your tenant for breaching ATCP 134
- When you are legally allowed to enter your tenant’s apartment
- How to properly draft an eviction summons and complaint

- What you can legally deduct from a security deposit
- How to properly draft a security deposit transmittal / 21-day letter

- What to do with a tenant’s abandoned property and how this may affect whether or not you file an eviction suit
- How to pursue your ex-tenant for damages to your rental property and past due rent (and whether it is even worth it to do so)
- An ample question and answer period. This alone is worth the admission.. . . and much more.
You get all this for less than you would pay for an hour of an attorney’s time.
