Wisconsin Rental Lease Agreement Forms and Templates


The Wisconsin rental lease agreements are real estate contracts that legally allow a property owner and tenant to make an arrangement for the use of liveable space in exchange for payment. Each party must abide by the terms and conditions as written in the contract. If either party breaks the lease, the other has the right to recover damages. The most common form of damage occurs when a tenant defaults by not paying rent and will thus be subject to eviction.
