Rent Smart 2017 focuses on the knowledge and skills essential for a successful renting experience. It challenges participants to know and understand their rights and responsibilities as a tenant, as well as know and understand the rights and responsibilities of their landlord. Emphasis is on forming a strong partnership between the tenant and landlord. Establishing a positive rental history is much like having a positive credit report and Rent Smart starts participants on the path for success.
Rent Smart is designed to help those individuals who have little to no rental experience and those who have had difficulty obtaining rental housing. Participants may be first time renters, as they graduate from school, or homeowners, transitioning to renting, individuals with poor rental or credit history, or individual who have other issues that may cause potential landlords to perceive them as high-risk tenants.
Training will be held on July 14th at the Spooner Ag Station and will be hosted by Washburn, Sawyer, and Polk Counties. Check in time is at 8:30 a.m. and networking starts at 9 am until 4 p.m. For registration, go to the website: http://go.wisc.edu/xb4wwp
