Oct 15

I am a strong supporter of both the Apartment Association of Southeastern WI as well as believing all landlords should know as much as possible about our business.  Seminars such as the AASEW Landlord Boot Camp were the foundation that I built my knowledge of rental laws upon.  I encourage you to attend this fall’s AASEW Boot Camp.

This Boot Camp may be more important for those with a good understanding of the laws as it will go into detail on what to expect when the new Wisconsin Landlord Tenant Law passes later this month.

DON’T MISS AASEW’s Landlord Boot Camp – Including Information on the new landlord-tenant law bill

This all day event will cover everything you need to know about Wisconsin’s landlord-tenant laws to succeed as a landlord or property manager. I will also be talking about the new landlord-tenant bill that is currently pending in Madison and which we believe will become law before the end of the year. This 22 page bill will greatly affect landlord-tenant law in Wisconsin. Be the first on your block to learn about it : )

You can also read more about the this month’s boot camp at www.landlordtenantlawblog.com

What you will learn at the Apartment Association’s 2013 Boot Camp

Landlord Boot Camp covers everything that you need to know about residential Landlord Tenant law in Wisconsin, as amended by Act 143, including:

  1. How to properly screen prospective tenants
  2. How to draft written screening criteria to assist you in the selection process
  3. How to comply with both federal and state Fair Housing laws including how to comply with “reasonable modifications” and “reasonable accommodations” requests
  4. How to legally reject an applicant
  5. What rental documents you should be using and why
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. When you are legally allowed to enter your tenant’s apartment
  9. How to properly draft an eviction summons and complaint
  10. What to do to keep the commissioner from dismissing your eviction suit
  11. What you can legally deduct from a security deposit
  12. How to properly draft a security deposit transmittal / 21 day letter
  13. How to handle pet damage
  14. What to do with a tenant’s abandoned property and how this may affect whether or not you file an eviction suit
  15. 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)
  16. 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.

Last year’s AASEW Landlord Boot Camp was filled to capacity. So much so we even had to turn a few people away. So call early to reserve your spot.

Call the Association at (414) 276-7378 sign up online or email  membership@apartmentassoc.org today to reserve your spot.

Remember that “landlording” is a business — so take the time to educate yourself on how to better manage your business and avoid costly errors!
