The Wisconsin 5-day notice to quit for nuisance is used to evict a tenant within five (5) days when a landlord has received notice from a law enforcement agency that a nuisance (as defined by § 823.113 (1) or (1m)(b)) exists on the property or was committed by the tenant. If the tenant chooses, they can challenge the lease termination by writing a letter to the landlord stating that they are not guilty of the allegations. The landlord will then be required to let the tenant stay and file with the court to prove the drug or gang activity to a judge. There is no other recourse that the tenant can take to remain on the premises, and the notice does not provide any solutions beyond moving out.
