When Is It Illegal for Landlords to Retaliate in Wyoming?

Wyoming landlords are generally allowed to retaliate against tenants by evicting or changing the terms of the tenancy in response to something the tenant does. If the response is legal in general, it’s still legal for a landlord to do even with a retaliatory intention.

What Can Tenants Do in Response in Wyoming?

Tenants cannot respond to retaliation unless the manner of retaliation substantially prevents the use of the property for its intended purpose. If this happens, the tenant can claim constructive eviction and move out, which ends the lease. Evidence of the landlord’s retaliatory intention makes it easier to prove constructive eviction.
