eviction notices

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   Michigan’s courts will likely face a surge in eviction cases if a moratorium is lifted at the end of the month; however, the state Supreme Court is planning ways to help avert people being turned out of their homes for failure to pay rent. 

Governor Gretchen Whitmer ordered the eviction moratorium in mid-March as part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. Before then, courts processed about 17,000 eviction cases every month.

Bill would let landlords e-vict

Mar 19, 2015

LANSING, MI (AP)--   The Michigan House has approved legislation that would let landlords email eviction notices to tenants or notify them via social media.

State law says landlords must deliver eviction notices in writing, either on site or by mail. The bill passed 85-24 Wednesday would permit electronic eviction notices only if tenants consent.

The measure now moves to the Senate.

The bill would prohibit landlords from refusing to enter leases because prospective tenants decline to consent to electronic eviction notices.
