The Wisconsin five (5) day notice to pay or quit, with the laws of Statute 704.17(2), is ONLY valid for leases of one (1) year or less for nonpayment or noncompliance with the rental agreement by the tenant. This notice is to be served by the landlord either personally or through certified mail while keeping the return receipt for documentation. If the tenant decides not to either pay all that is due to the landlord as well as not move-out of the property, an eviction suit may be filed against the tenant.
