Eau Claire Tenant Landlord
One eviction can change the trajectory of an individual or a family's life
and multiple evictions in a community are destabilizing. We aim to
intervene early between tenants and landlords before the word
'eviction' is even spoken.

A petition from Legal Action of Wisconsin aims to change the rules around keeping eviction histories in public record, proposing that eviction records only be kept for one year when the case did not involve a money judgement. After that year, the record would be removed from the Wisconsin-wide circuit court website. Read more about this proposal as it goes through the Wisconsin Supreme Court here.
- TENANTS: If you've received an eviction notice please consult with a case worker at Western Dairyland, or your County Department of Human Services to see if you are eligible for assistance. Avoid predatory lending schemes such as "payday loans"--they only make the problem worse. If you decide to go to court, know that you can ask the court to order mediation and you may be able to mediate the terms of moving out.
