Late Fees,

COVID-19
/ Comments

On, April 25, 2020, with little publicity, the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) published a temporary emergency rule (20-R-02) modifying Wis. Admin Code ch ATCP 134 (“Residential Rental Practices”) creating a temporary prohibition on the charging of late fees or late rent penalties for any missed rent payments during the COVID-19 health emergency and during the 90 days following the health care emergency or until August 27, 2020 unless the public health emergency is extended.  This rule only applies to residential housing.

The emergency rule will expire at the earliest of:
1. 150 days after the emergency rule is published,
2. 90 days after the expiration of the public health emergency (which is currently set to expire on May 26, 2020) , or
3. 90 days after the recission of the proclamation of the public health emergency.
