Wyoming Statutes § 1-21-1203 requires the landlord to offer and maintain a safe and fit premises that protects the health and safety of the tenant.


Right of Entry

In Wyoming, the statutes are silent on how much notice is needed for the landlord to enter the premises. Best to spell this out in the rental lease agreement.


Notice to End Lease

Wyoming has no stipulations regarding how much time is needed to end a lease. As a matter of fact, it is one of the only states that does not have stipulations regarding ending the lease. To protect themselves, a landlord wants to use a good, strong rental lease agreement that spells out lease end requirements.


Eviction Proceedings

Non-Payment of Rent: When the tenant fails to pay rent, the landlord must provide a 3-day notice to quit. This is sent after any specified grace-period in the lease. If the tenant does not pay what is due by the end of the 3 days, the landlord may file in court for formal eviction.

Lease Violation other than Non-payment (including illegal activity): If there is a breach or violation of the lease, the landlord provides a 3-day notice to the tenant. This notice does not have to provide the tenant opportunity to fix the issue. At the end of the three days, the landlord may file in court for formal eviction.
