Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Michigan?

This question is about Michigan Landlord Tenant Rights

Michigan tenants can change their locks, as long as this isn’t prohibited by the terms of the rental agreement. Landlords, by contrast, are prohibited from unilaterally changing the locks since this is considered a form of illegal “self help” eviction.
