Suitable for renting out every residential property type, this rental agreement for Wisconsin can be used in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, or any additional city or municipality in the Badger State.
As with any legal agreement, a Wisconsin Rental Contract is not legally binding until all parties to the agreement have signed. This is not a run-of-the-mill Wisconsin Lease Agreement template. Any Wisconsin Residential Lease Agreement under a Premium membership is supported by Document Defense®, an optional benefit to help enforce your rights.
Even if you are providing the rental to a friend, the Wisconsin Lease Agreement is a document that should never be missed. Using this document could be helpful for you because of the benefits outlined below:

The response could depend on your specific needs; but, regardless of where you are, there are several items that you might want to keep in mind as you decide whether or not to invest in real estate. They may include: the breadth of tenants' rights, mandated disclosures, restrictions on security deposits, how challenging the eviction process is, and, finally, the amount of property taxes. This being said, Wisconsin is home to colleges and universities like the University of Wisconsin, Beloit College, and Lawrence University as well as popular attractions like the Harley-Davidson Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and Devil's Lake State Park, so you shouldn't experience any lack of short- or long-term tenants if you're located nearby.
