No Late Fees / Penalties during COVID-19

May 01 2020

 

MADISON –The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has approved an emergency rule to prohibit late fees or penalties for missed or late rent payments during COVID-19. Due to the rapidly changing economic landscape, many people have also had to navigate job losses, furloughs, and layoffs. As a result, their incomes are lower or gone altogether, making it extremely difficult to pay their rent in a timely manner during this public health emergency.

 

 

Consumers with questions or issues related to landlord-tenant agreements can contact DATCP’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-422-7128 or DATCPHotline@wisconsin.gov, or file a complaint online at www.datcp.wi.gov
 
If you have health-related questions about COVID-19, please visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ (DHS) website: http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/disease/covid-19.htm
