Attorney Tristan Pettit is presenting the Landlord Boot Camp again this February.  Prior Boot Camps were very well received, with positive feed back from all that attended

Here is Tristan’s letter describing the event.

Hi Everyone:
I have finally left behind the “snail mail” letters announcing upcoming seminars that I am presenting and have now moved into the correct century and am using an email distribution list.
I will be presenting an all-day seminar on residential Landlord Tenant law in Wisconsin for the Apartment Association of Southeastern Wisconsin, Inc. (AASEW).  The seminar is entitled “Landlord Boot Camp” and will take place on Saturday, February 27, 2010 from approx. 8:30 am – 5 pm at the Clarion Hotel located at 5311 S. Howell Avenue in Milwaukee.
The cost will be $159 for AASEW members and $249 for non-members.  You will receive a 100 page plus manual including lots of landlord tenant law forms.  I have given a similar seminar to lawyers, landlords and property managers over 25 times during the past few years and the organizations that have sponsored these seminars typically charge between $300-$400.  This is your opportunity to learn all of the same information at a much discounted price.
I will cover pretty much anything and everything that you need to know about residential Landlord Tenant law in Wisconsin, 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 accomodations” 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
  • 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 to do to keep the commissioner from dismissing your eviction suit
  • What you can legally deduct from a security deposit
  • How to properly complete a security deposit transmittal / 21 day letter
  • How to handle pet damage
  • 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)
. . .  and much more.
For further information and to register to attend the seminar please contact Paulette (the AASEW’s Membership Director) at 414-276-7378 or paulette@apartmentassoc.org
Thanks and I hope to see you there.  Seating is limited to the first 30 people!!!!
