Today I attended the first ever Milwaukee Landlord-Tenant Summit. It was held at the Community Advocates building on James Lovell St. If you have never been to this building, it houses not only Community Advocates, but also Legal Aid, and the Rental Housing Resource Center.

The meeting was lead by Ericka Crowley, the Rental Housing Quality Assurance Manager for Community Advocates. There was a mixture of landlords, tenants, and case workers in attendance at this summit.

The short meeting included the following discussion:

  • A small quiz to test knowledge of landlord-tenant law
  • Information about a series of training videos for tenants that are being developed
  • Discussions among the parties about issues with housing

One focus of the meeting is the message that all parties involved in housing should be in the discussion, including landlords. Too often, rental property providers have been left out of the discussion, and it's a step forward to see that we are being included.
