I hope these changes will make the rental form more current and more advantageous for those of you who use it. If you are interested in purchasing the new enhanced lease, Please contact the Wisconsin Legal Blank Co., Inc. at (414) 344-5155, wilegalblank.com or personally in 749 N. 37th Street in Milwaukee The biggest change in this form is to include language with respect to criminal and drug-related activities in rental premises, as in Wis. Stat. 704.17 (3m) as established by Law 176. I have added a new section entitled “Electronic Transmission of Certain Information/Documentations” that summarizes the new law allowing a lessor to send certain information and documents to a tenant electronically, as long as the parties have given their written consent. Please note that for this part of the new law to apply, a lessor must enter into a new lease or registration containing such a language after April 18, 2018, the effective date of Act 317. For more information on the new law on criminal activity in rental housing, refer to my blog post, which summarizes Law 176.
In fact, there are no strict provisions for mandatory commitment to leases. In some cases, however, the landlord may be curious about the tenant`s rental history or creditworthiness, so that if the tenant is particularly interested in renting a particular property, it may be advantageous to provide this information. A residential rental form is a legally binding contract between the owner of a residential property in the State of Wisconsin and the staff who wish to rent it. In accordance with the agreement, the parties are the owners and the tenants. Filling out this form does not necessarily follow a specified time frame. However, the tenancy agreement should be signed before the tenant moves in. The agreement usually lasts 12 months. I have completely rewritten the “Damage by Casualty” section of the lease, given the huge increase in flooding and fires I have seen in recent times. I felt that the previous language was not clear enough to allow an owner to have all the options at his disposal when the rental premises became untenable due to accidents. With the significant increase in tenants everywhere subletting their rents, or part of their rents, via websites such as Airbnb, Homeaway, and VRBO, it has become necessary to complete the section of the form entitled “Attribution or subletting” that short-term or rental apartments are in fact a sublet and are not allowed.
