How To Write an Eviction Notice in Michigan

To help ensure the legal compliance of an eviction notice:

  1. Use the tenant’s full name and address
  2. Specify the lease violation as well as any balance due
  3. Specify the date of termination
  4. Print name and sign the notice, including the landlord’s address of record
  5. Note the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Calculate Expiration Date in Michigan

The “clock” for an eviction notice period starts “ticking” the day after the notice gets delivered (served). For example, to give at least 30 days of notice and begin court action as of June 30th, delivery of the eviction notice must be no later than May 31st. There is one exception in Michigan: A 30 Day Notice to Comply or Vacate takes effect the day of service, if served in person.

In most jurisdictions, if the last day of a notice period is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the notice period continues to run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. This is called the “next judicial day;” in other words, the next day a courthouse is open.

How To Serve an Eviction Notice in Michigan

Michigan landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a person of suitable age who can accept the notice on behalf of the tenant
  3. Delivery by first class mail
  4. Delivery by electronic means (if both parties have agreed in writing to accept a particular form of electronic service)

Mailed notice does not begin counting toward a notice period until the next day after mailing that mail is delivered. Electronic notice is begins counting toward a notice period when the receiving party responds to the message.
