Landlord Boot Camp Is Just Around The Corner – October 4, 2014.

The AASEW’s ever popular Landlord Boot Camp is just around the corner.  It will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm at the Clarion Hotel located near the airport.

At this Fall’s Boot Camp I will be updating everyone on how the courts have been handling and interpreting all of the law changes since Act 76 was passed back in March of this year.

I will also address numerous other of topics that will help you navigate Wisconsin’s complex landlord - tenant laws.  Learn how to run your properties with greater profit while staying out of trouble.  Landlording can be pretty complex, with a seemingly never ending myriad of paperwork, rules, landlord-tenant laws and simple mistakes that can cost you thousands.

 

Some of the other topics that will be covered include:

1) How to properly screen prospective tenants

2) How to draft written screening criteria to assist you in the tenant 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 or judge from dismissing your eviction lawsuit

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)

There will also be time for “Q&A” and Lunch is included!

If that is not enough you will also receive a manual that is over 100 pages that includes all of Tristan’s outlines on the various topics and various forms.

 

Who:         Taught by Attorney Tristan Pettit, who drafts the landlord tenant forms for Wisconsin Legal Blank.

When:       Saturday, October 4, 2014  from8:30 AM – 5:30 PM —- Registration opens at 7:00 AM

We had a great AASEW monthly membership meeting last night — close to 90 people.  That was the largest crowd that I have seen at a meeting in my many years as a member.  Many of the attendees at the meeting also signed up for the AASEW’s Landlord Bootcamp that I will be teaching in about 10 days.  If you are interested in attending I would encourage you to do so immediately as I am told that there are only 4 seats left.  Looks like we will have a full house!
 
Below is my earlier blog post about the Boot Camp and the topics that I will address on Feb. 27th:
 
 
I will be presenting an all-day seminar on residential landlord tenant law in Wisconsin for the Apartment Association of Southeastern Wisconsin, Inc.

Howell Avenue in Milwaukee.
 
The cost will be $159 for AASEW members and $259 for non-members.  You will receive a 100 page plus manual.  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:
 
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 accomodations” 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)
 
. . .  and much more.
 
Hope to see you there.
