This state specific form provides a means for a landlord to deduct items from the security deposit other than:
1. Any physical damage to the rental property that is considered beyond reasonable wear and tear.
2. Unpaid rent
3. Any utility payment that is provided by the landlord and the tenant is responsible for.
4. Any amount the tenant owes for a government owned utility such as municipal water or sewer.
5. Any unpaid monthly permit fees gaged against the tenant in conjunction with manufactured or mobile home communities.
The landlord will provide the Non-Standard Rental Provision form to a tenant before or at the commencement of the signing of the lease agreement. The tenant must read each section and initial to the left of each section. Both the landlord and tenant will sign the bottom. When the tenant initials and signs, it is presumed that everything is agreed upon.
Creating the Ez Landlord Forms’ Wisconsin Non-Standard Rental Provisions document is super easy! It is defaulted to attach to your Wisconsin state-specific lease package as well. It is an edit-able document so the landlord may add or delete provisions as they apply to each of their rental circumstances.
Some of the items covered are late fees, trash removal, lawn care, key return, parking and so much more. PLUS this form also has state required text already inserted. Therefore, if you want to ensure that your tenant not only fulfills his obligations but also understands that if he doesn’t; there are consequences in the way of deductions from the security deposit. For instance, let’s say a tenant is late on rent. A late fee has been charged. The tenant has never paid that late fee. Provided you have included it in the editable Wisconsin Non-Standard Rental Provisions document, the landlord may deduct it from the security deposit.
TIP: Make sure that your tenant initials and signs the document!
Glossary of Terms in this Document
- An addendum is a thing to be added; an addition. For example, it may be used to add supplemental terms or conditions to a contract or make corrections or supply omissions to a document. An addendum is often used to supply additional terms to standardized contracts, such as leases. Addendum is singular; the plural form is addenda.
- Reasonable Wear and Tear
- Commonly used in Leases to limit the Tenant's responsibility (and therefore liability to repair or repaint) upon leaving. It is subjective, but the considerations include the length of time of tenancy (the longer the occupancy the more wear and tear can be expected). The lack of unusual damage such as a hole in the wall or a broken window, and the condition of the premises when the Tenant moved in.
- Rental agreement
- A rental agreement is a contract, usually written, between the owner of a property and a renter who desires to have temporary possession of the property. As a minimum, the agreement identifies the parties, the property, the term of the rental, and the amount of rent for the term.
- Security Deposit
- Refundable money paid by a new Tenant to the Landlord at or before the move-in date, to guarantee the Tenant's performance of Lease obligations, i.e. no damage to the property beyond wear and tear, and payment of rent. Most states have set limits on the amount of money a Landlord may demand for a security deposit. A Lease or rental agreement should state the amount of the security deposit, and should also state what the security deposit will be used for, where it will be held, and whether it will earn interest.
