Rental Weatherization/DILHR Program Eliminated, as of January 1, 2018
Wednesday, October 18, 2017
The budget bill, recently signed by Governor Walker and
submitted to the legislature, eliminates the Rental
Weatherization/DILHR program. This program made it difficult
to buy and sell residential properties that were rented.
Previously, the state required buyers and/or sellers of rental
properties to obtain special inspections and certificates to make a
rental property compliant. The repeal of this bill will
remove yet another barrier to those who want to invest in rental
properties. Specifically, as of the New Year, rental property
owners will not have to file Stipulations, Waivers or Certificates
of Compliance related to the weatherization of the property.
It also means that the Rental Weatherization requirements will no
longer inhibit the recording of deeds.
For more information on the repeal of the Rental
Weatherization/DILHR Program or the legalities involved with the
sale or purchase of rental properties, please contact our office to
