For reasons lost to the shrouds of time, annual apartment leases in the City of Madison universally expire on August 14th and new leases are signed on August 15th.

As Moving Day descends upon the city once again, we bring tenants some advice about how to protect their rights. WORT listeners know Carousel Bayrd as the Wednesday host of A Public Affair. When she’s not on air, Carousel is a Housing Rights attorney at Community Justice Inc. and was the Program Chair and Lead Presenter of “Keeping Up With Constant Change: Residential Housing in Wisconsin” for the State Bar of Wisconsin. Carousel Bayrd joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on August 15, 2022.
