Aug. 1, 2012 – The landscape of landlord-tenant rules is changing. A federal law is set to sunset in 2014, a state law has already sunset, and Gov. Walker signed 2011 Act 143. In this video, Delavan attorney Brian A. Schuk discusses changes that attorneys representing tenants and landlords need to know.
New rules affecting clauses now void a lease immediately and there are now more protections for tenants. For more information about these changes attend a one-hour webcast of Landlord-Tenant Law: Rights, Remedies, and Changes Under New Act 143 on Aug. 8 and 17, 12-1 p.m. (CDT).
Schuk presented “Tenants’ Rights: What’s Left in This Fast Changing Field?” at the State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® Real Estate & Business Law Institute in June. Select sessions from this and the Litigation, Dispute Resolution & Appellate Practice Institute will be available as webcasts in September. All institute attendees can attend for free.
