In resolving conflict, you should always first contact your landlord in writing and describe the condition you are concerned about. Document the condition in detail, including photos, date, time, whom you notified and when. For information to assist you with this process please visit Wisconsin Tenant Resource Center. To help landlords and tenants avoid common problems, or to resolve them when they do occur, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection created this Guide For Landlords and Tenants.
Mold issues: The City of Neenah Housing Inspector does not handle mold concerns. The Wisconsin Dept of Health Services has a helpful website concerning mold issues.
