Tips for renting in Milwaukee, WI

If you’re moving to the city to pursue higher education, a good option for you are the apartments lying east of the Milwaukee River. The neighborhoods in this region are more suited for young professionals and academics.

It’s important to familiarize yourself with Wisconsin’s laws regarding tenants’ rights and responsibilities.

Know that if you live in an apartment complex which rents by the month, the landlord must give you a termination notice of at least 28 days prior to your next rent’s due date. If you wish to terminate your lease, you must give your landlord this same notification.

If signing for a six-month or one-year lease, know that landlords are not mandated to automatically renew the lease. In fact, they can sign somebody else to the sequential lease period without notifying you.
