Property Rental and Housing

There are guidelines and procedures that both tenants and landlords should follow when renting an apartment or house to ensure the rental process goes well. See the following resources for helpful information regarding the rental process:

WI Way – A guide for landlords and tenants when renting a property.

Healthy Home Checklist 2010 – Some helpful information for use when moving into a new home or ensuring your current one is safe.

Check-In/Check-Out Form – Use this form during a joint tenant/landlord inspection whenever the unit changes occupants.

  • List the conditions, good or bad, of the major
    components of the unit.
  • Both the landlord and tenant should sign the list and keep
    a copy for their records.
  • After the start of occupancy, the tenant has seven (7) days to inform the landlord of other damages or defects not discovered during the joint inspection.
  • This will serve as documentation of initial property conditions when the tenant vacates the property.

Failure of a landlord to use a written check-in/check-out procedure will serve as evidence that the tenant is correct in any dispute over property conditions, unless a governmental third-party has previously verified property conditions.
