Your lease or rental agreement should spell out your landlord’s key rent rules, including:
Wyoming state laws do not cover most of these rent-related issues.
Rent is legally due on the date specified in your lease or rental agreement (usually the first of the month). If you don’t pay rent when it is due, the landlord may begin charging you a late fee. Wyoming state law does not cover late rent fees. If your lease or rental agreement does not say anything about late fees, your landlord may not impose one, no matter how reasonable it is.
Wyoming state law does not cover notice required to increase rent.
Wyoming landlords may not raise the rent in a discriminatory manner—for example, only for members of a certain race.
States set specific rules and procedures for ending a tenancy when a tenant has not paid the rent. Wyoming landlords may file for eviction when rent is three days or more late and tenant has been given at least three days’ notice. A landlord can also terminate with an Unconditional Quit notice. (Wyo. Stat. § § 1-21-1002 to 1-21-1003.)
