Generally a landlord must give you 12 hours advance notice of the showing unless you as the tenant consent to a shorter time period after the landlord informs you that they want to show the apartment. This is assuming you do not have a nonstandard rental provision in your lease. If you have a nonstandard rental provision in your lease, it may allow the landlord to show the property to prospective buyers with less notice. Such a nonstandard rental provision should be included in a separate written document entitled "Nonstandard Rental Provisions" that the landlord provided to you with the lease. Please review ATCP 134.09 for further details on notice provisions and when the landlord is allowed to enter the premises without notice. As far as evening showings, I do not believe there is anything in the law that would allow you to prohibit morning showings, but it can't hurt to ask the landlord if they could accommodate your husband's sleep schedule. http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/code/admin_code/atcp/090/134/09/2/cSee question

Rocket Lawyer has some good forms that can likely accomplish what you are wanting to do. To answer your question, the forms are likely valid in your state, but you need to make sure you fill them out correctly and provide the right information in order for them to be effective. You should consider consulting with a business lawyer near you. You could draft the forms and then pay a lawyer to review them for you. Be aware that some lawyers will do this and others would prefer to draft the agreement themselves.See question

I agree with Attorney Krueger, that you can have the Trustee of the Trust complete a Trustee's Deed to transfer the home from the trust's name to your name, assuming this is what the trust document says should be done with the properties. It was not clear to me from your question if you are the Trustee of the Trust. If you are the Trustee you can sign and record the deeds. If you are not the Trustee, then the currently acting Trustee should complete these deeds. A real estate transfer return will also need to be completed before you can file the deeds with the Register of Deeds. A qualified attorney in your area can assist the trustee of the trust with its administration.See question
Just wondering if someone had an accident on my property if they could sue me. Whereas, if we incorporate they would have to sue the "company".
If you own the rental property personally and not through a corporate entity, if someone is injured on the property they could potentially sue you personally for damages. Many people in your situation form a Limited Liability Company to own their rental properties. Some people even form a separate LLC for each property they own. If you form an LLC for your rental property you should be careful to ensure that you follow the necessary corporate formalities when operating your LLC in order to retain the limited liability protections. Whether you have an LLC or not for your rental property you may want to consider a liability insurance policy for your property as well. You should speak with a local attorney about the best options for your situation.See question
I may use Nolo's Willmaker
In order for a Will to be validly executed in Wisconsin, you are required to have it signed by two witnesses. You have the option to also have the Will "self-proved" by having you and the witnesses sign in front of a notary, however signing the Will in front of a notary alone is not enough to validly execute the Will.
Below is the statute on executing a Will in Wisconsin:
853.03 Execution of wills. Every will in order to be validly executed must be in writing and executed with all of the following formalities:
(1) It must be signed by the testator, by the testator with the assistance of another person with the testator's consent or in the testator's name by another person at the testator's direction and in the testator's conscious presence.
(am) It must be signed by at least 2 witnesses who signed within a reasonable time after any of the following:
1. The signing of the will as provided under sub. (1), in the conscious presence of the witness.
2. The testator's implicit or explicit acknowledgement of the testator's signature on the will, in the conscious presence of the witness.
3. The testator's implicit or explicit acknowledgement of the will, in the conscious presence of the witness.
(bm) The 2 witnesses required under par. (am) may observe the signing or acknowledgement under par. (am) 1. to 3. at different times.

The will allows one sibling to live in the house until death. When this sibling dies or moves out for more than 6 months the house can be sold and proceeds split up. The siblings not living in the house are wondering if we are responsible for t...
It sounds like your sibling was granted a "life estate" in the property, meaning they can live there for the rest of their life or until they move out. The Will should state who is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the house during the time your sibling lives there. Generally the life tenant (your sibling) has certain responsibilities to maintain the property for the remaindermen (you and the rest of your siblings) while they occupy the property. You may want to contact a local lawyer to review the language in the Will to give you advice tailored to your specific situation.See question

If you draft a Will or Trust, you can choose whoever you wish to leave your estate to in that document. You could leave it to family, or to friends, or to a charity. If you don't have a Will in place, then the Wisconsin intestate statutes would dictate what happens to your estate. Within your Will or Trust you can name a Personal Representative or Trustee to carry out your wishes. You should also consider preparing healthcare power of attorney and financial power of attorney documents along with your Will or Trust.See question
my husband died and his two sons are trying to get property from me claiming my husband said they could have said property-- boat - truck- camper - antiques etc.
Your husband's estate consists of half of your marital property and any individual property he may have held. If your husband had a Will, the terms of the Will should be followed. If he left certain items of property to his sons in his Will, then it is possible that they are entitled to those items of personal property under the terms of the Will. Based on the way you worded your question I am assuming his two sons are from a previous relationship. If that is the case, and if your husband died without a will, as the surviving spouse, you are entitled to half the marital property and half of your husband's estate that is not marital property. The State Bar has a helpful primer on marital property that you could review. I suggest you talk to a local lawyer who can help you sort through what is marital property and what is not and your options regarding probate. http://www.wisbar.org/forpublic/ineedinformation/pages/marriage-marital-property.aspxSee question

You can set up a will with a testamentary trust that would provide for your son after your death. The testamentary trust in the will could be designated as a beneficiary of your financial accounts and possibly your retirement accounts depending on how it is structured. You can then name a trustee to manage these assets until your son reaches a certain age designated by you. Money from this testamentary trust could be used for your son's health, education, and support to help raise him. I suggest you contact a local estate planning attorney who can discuss your specific situation with you.See question
