Can the landlord terminate the rental agreement if the tenant fails to pay one month rent?
I live in a rented house in Wisconsin. I have a monthly tenancy agreement with the landlord. I have not been able to pay my rent this month. Can my landlord terminate the rental agreement?01/11/2017 | Category: Landlord Ten... » Lease Termin... | State: Wisconsin | #29902
Wis. Stat. § 704.17 reads:
“(a) If a month-to-month tenant or a week-to-week tenant fails to pay rent when due, the tenants tenancy is terminated if the landlord gives the tenant notice requiring the tenant to pay rent or vacate on or before a date at least 5 days after the giving of the notice and if the tenant fails to pay accordingly. A month-to-month tenancy is terminated if the landlord, while the tenant is in default in payment of rent, gives the tenant notice requiring the tenant to vacate on or before a date at least 14 days after the giving of the notice.”
In the given instance, the landlord may terminate the monthly tenancy pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 704.17.
