You read your WY state law to find out what your options and their responsibilities are, take photos of all needed repairs that are undone and make a written request including several photos send registered mail to the landlord.

What issues are you having with the property?

calling him a "slum lord" is probably the least productive way to address your problem, fyi!

Landlord tenant laws vary from state to state, here's a link to the state law list.

Have you notified the landlord in writing of the issues?   Do they affect habitability (e.g heat, water etc) or are they more cosmetic?   

You may be able to find legal aide sources helpful in the area.

You do have rights under the Landlord Tenant Act. Look it up online and educate yourself. Also, take pics and put everything that is wrong with the home in writing. Send the landlord a certified letter. You need a paper trail to prove you tried to get them to make repairs. You don't want it to come back on you that you didn't act responsabily by not making note of concerns to them. So have proof of what is there and take pics to prove it. I would call your city to see if there is a division that can assist you. There are divisions that handle these concerns for citizens. If after all this, try legal aid for help. Since attorneys are expensive, legal aid might be able to help. Good Luck!
