Using The Wisconsin 5 Day Notice to Cure or Vacate

This notice can be used as a warning when a tenant has violated their lease agreement for reasons other than nonpayment of rent. This form is given to the tenant by the landlord to inform the tenant that they must cure the violation, vacate the property or face eviction proceedings in the court system.

    This notice can be used for reasons such as:
  • Having an unauthorized pet,
  • Not meeting health and safety standards,
  • Having too many occupants for the space,
  • Damaging the property,
  • Participating in illegal activity.

The tenant will be given this warning, have 5 days to comply with the demands set out in the notice. If they have not achieved this and are still living at the property without having cured the violation then the landlord may file for a hearing in court to have the tenant evicted with the assistance of the local authorities.

Delivering The Notice

    While delivering the notice to the tenant may vary in certain states and counties, in this situation the landlord has a few options, including:
  • Hand delivery to the tenant at the property,
  • Posting the notice at the property,
  • Leaving the notice with a responsible resident,
  • Mailing the notice to the tenant.

Landlords should remember that choosing to mail the notice means that there will be time added to the 5 day compliance period. Sending the notice through the mail could add up to 3 days from the time it is sent in order to allow for it to reach the tenant.

Wisconsin Specifics

The state of Wisconsin has some of the most complicated landlord and tenant laws as well as eviction requirements. It is in the best interest of the landlord to hire an attorney before even attempting a formal eviction or serving this warning notice.

Landlords that know more about the laws in their state can be more prepared to deal with a problem tenant. Though the Wisconsin laws are complicated, they are worth reading. This can be done by going to: http://www.wis-law.com/tenant.html
