Yesterday was a busy day for those legislators that are not fans of landlords or what we do as a profession. As if the rampant sealing of eviction records that is prevalent in Milwaukee County was not bad enough (so that future landlords will not be aware that an applicant had a recent eviction), below is a list of proposed legislation from Madison that is being passed around by the authors trying to get co-sponsors.
If this isn’t a reason to become a member of the Rental Property Association of Wisconsin (RPA) which was formally known as the Apartment Association of Southeastern Wisconsin (AASEW), I don’t know what is.
