You Have A LOT to Lose When Property Laws Change

Support the Homeowners Bill of Rights
(AB 479/SB 387)

We need to protect Wisconsin families who invest in property and our state. Wisconsin has a long tradition of people who buy land to save for retirement, a child’s college education, or to pass along to their children. But many local governments are changing zoning laws long after a property has been purchased to prevent property owners from building upon or selling their property. That’s just not fair. Property owners should be able to purchase property without having their rights to build upon or sell their property taken away.

That’s why we need the Homeowners Bill of Rights to protect the rights of all property owners. The Homeowners Bill of Rights would:

  • Grandfather properties from changes in local zoning laws that prevent them from being sold or built upon.

  • Prohibit local governments from requiring adjacent lots owned by the same person to be merged together into one lot.

  • Create a comprehensive state law so that the rights of property owners are protected, regardless of where they buy property in the state.
