Landlord/Tenant Law

Legal Aid helps Milwaukee County tenants in disputes with current or former landlords.  Examples of the types of cases Legal Aid takes:

  • Eviction defense (this is our primary focus in landlord tenant law)
  • Security deposits
  • Failure to make repairs
  • Lock-outs
  • Other landlord/tenant issues on a case by case basis

Our focus is on preventing homelessness through eviction defense, but anyone with landlord tenant problems should discuss their issue with a Legal Aid attorney.
