WI Remains Under Evictions Moratorium
Wisconsin continues to be under a moratorium on evictions for non-payment. State consumer protection administrator Lara Sutherlin says that rent isn’t forgiven though, and landlords will still be able to collect rent once the order is lifted.
“At that point, landlords can use whatever powers they can to get that rent from you, including eviction. But during the moratorium you cannot be evicted for failure to pay rent.” Sutherlin reminds landlords that under no circumstances should they be trying to do self-help evictions on their own. That means no changing locks and no denying basic services.
