The Wisconsin 5-day notice to quit for criminal activity is a notice delivered to a tenant who has carried out illegal activity on the premises, providing them with five (5) days to move out or face an eviction suit. The landlord is within their rights to terminate a tenancy if the tenant, or a member of the tenant’s household, or a guest has engaged in criminal activity that threatens the safety of others on or around the premises, or that disturbs the peace of others on or around the premises.

The same notice to quit can be used for any drug-related criminal activity (as defined in 704.17(3m)(a)2). The tenant must be notified that they are allowed to contest the allegations and that they have access and the right to legal aid.
