The last AASEW Boot Camp was November 12, 2022. It was a successful event where our attendees learned a lot. Please watch for future announcements for the next Boot Camp in 2023!

Who Teaches the AASEW Boot Camp?

The AASEW Boot Camp is taught by Attorney Tristan Pettit, who drafts many of the landlord tenant forms for Wisconsin Legal Blank. Attorney Tristan Pettit has given similar landlord-tenant law seminars to fellow attorneys, landlords, and property manager organizations that charge their members $400-$500. This is your opportunity to learn all of the same information at a huge discount through the Apartment Association.

What's Included with Boot Camp Attendance?

Attendees will receive a 100 plus page manual to help you put what you learn into practice. The manual is now a searchable PDF, which allows you to quickly find the information you need. The completed sample forms will give you confidence you are filing your forms out correctly.

Why Attend the AASEW Boot Camp?

Remember that landlording is a business — Take yours to the next level by educating yourself on how to better manage your tenants and avoid costly errors!

What Will you Learn at the AASEW Boot Camp?

What you will learn at the AASEW Landlord Boot Camp:

  • How to properly screen prospective tenants.

  • How to comply with both federal and state Fair Housing laws including how to comply with "reasonable modifications” and "reasonable accommodations” requests.
  • How to legally reject an applicant.
  • What rental documents you should be using and why.
  • When you should be using a 5-day notice versus a 14-day notice, 28-day notice, or 30-day notice and how to properly serve the notice on your tenant Wisconsin Eviction Notices requirements have changed a lot in the past few years, with major changes in March 2016 and again in March 2018.
  • Everything you wanted to know (and probably even more than you wanted to know) about the Residential Rental Practices (ATCP 134) and how to avoid having to pay double damages to your tenant for breaching ATCP 134.
  • When you are legally allowed to enter your tenant’s apartment.
  • How to properly draft an eviction summons and complaint.

  • How to properly draft a security deposit transmittal (21-day) letter.
  • How to handle pet damage.
  • What to do with a tenant’s abandoned property and how this may affect whether or not you file an eviction suit.
  • How to pursue your ex-tenant for damages to your rental property and past due rent (and whether it is even worth it to do so).

There will be an ample question and answer period following the training session. This alone is worth the admission.

All this for less than you would pay for an hour of an attorney's time!
