Hello Everyone –

There is less than 1 month left until the next Landlord Boot Camp which is scheduled for October 20, 2018.

One new topic that I will discuss is Milwaukee County’s new ordinance creating a new protected class for tenants with rental vouchers.  I will be explaining the new ordinance and what a landlord can and cannot do with regard to this new protected class.

I also will be discussing the new law changes under Act 317 which became effective as of April 18, 2018.  With so many changes in the law recently, this is definitely the Boot camp that you want to attend.  The 100+ page manual has also been updated as have many of the sample forms that are included.

To sign up now you can call or email Kathy at (414) 276-7378 or kathy@AASEW.org or sign up online at www.LandlordBootCamp2018.com

Below are more details about the event.
