If you want to start the process of evicting a tenant in Detroit, you can serve your tenant first with an Eviction Notice (7 days or 30 days) . Depending on your situation, this notice may or may not have to include the reason or reasons for eviction:
For example, if the tenant is failing to do something—such as pay rent—the notice will have to state this and state a time and manner in which the tenant has to pay rent in order to avoid eviction. If your tenant corrects the problem, you no longer have cause for eviction. If your tenant does not remedy the problem within the time provided, you may file an complaint for eviction in court.
If the notice does not need to have a reason or reasons for the eviction—such as a 30-day notice to move out of a month-to-month tenancy—you may file an lawsuit as soon as the notice period ends.
Michigan Landlords: You must serve your tenant with 7 days notice to quit or 30 days notice to quit before you file your case in court.

Remember, lockouts are illegal. This includes forcing a tenant to leave by shutting off their utilities.
An eviction is a legal process in which a landlord asks the Michigan court to removes a tenant from a rental property.

How Landlords Can Evict Bad Tenants in Detroit Michigan?
It’s important to follow the proper procedures!
Even with the best tenants, you always run into the possibility of an eviction. If you are considering an eviction, you need to know how to go about it and what to expect through the process. Before you get started, be sure to follow the laws in the State of Michigan.
Never Take Matters into Your Own Hands
Even though you may think that it will be easier to simply evict tenants without going through the necessary steps, it is illegal in Michigan to do a self-help eviction. You must follow the rules and regulations in Michigan otherwise you may get sued by your tenant.
Below some examples of things you cannot do without going through the proper legal steps include:
removing the tenant from the property by force;
removing the belongings of your tenants from the property;
changing the locks on the home and essentially locking them out of the property;
turning off any essential utilities to the property such as water, gas, and electric; and
harass the tenants as a way to make them leave the property.
You will need to go through with the eviction process in order to remove the tenants from your property even if you think it may be easier and faster to do things without following the rule

When Can a Landlord Evict a Tenant in Detroit Areas?
According to Michigan landlord-Tenant laws, a landlord is able to evict a tenant on specific grounds, such as in the event of a holdover or non-payment of rent. A holdover case occurs when the lease end or the landlord believes the tenant violated the terms of the lease in any way other than non-payment of rent.
Holdover cases frequently involve lease violations such as:
- Harming or destroying property
- Having an unauthorized pet or appliance
- Overstaying the expiration date of the lease
- Subletting to other people without permission
- Engaging in activities that are bothersome to other tenants
The other common reason for eviction of a tenant, non-payment of rent, is self-explanatory. This happens when a tenant fails to make their monthly rent payments on time. When these types of disputes cannot be settled, the tenant may be served with a formal notice of eviction by the landlord.
Rent arrears are one of the most common reasons landlords and letting agents come to us to start eviction proceedings in Detroit areas. Regardless of the reasons behind the tenant not paying the rent, the spiralling rent debt can be crippling for any landlord.

You’ve rented out your warehouse, office, retail space, or other commercial property on the basis of an oral or written agreement. For one reason or another, the tenant breached the terms of the lease. You now need to consider evicting the Tenant. Michigan law draws several clear distinctions between residential and commercial evictions, the latter being more complicated and often more likely to result in lengthy litigation. One of the most common ways a tenant might breach a lease is by refusing to pay rent or failing to pay other charges due under the Lease. Commercial landlords need to be cognizant that evictions are not self-help measures, and landlords cannot lock their tenants out without resorting to judicial process. Evictions have to be done according to the laws of the State where the property is located. Changing the locks or in anyway altering the property without first going through the judicial process may be result in the Landlord incurring substantial liability for illegal or wrongful eviction. Without a team of legal professionals to guide you along the way, you run the risk of wrongfully evicting your commercial tenant. Our Michigan eviction attorneys have litigated thousands of commercial evictions. Retaining an eviction lawyer with experience litigating commercial leases is critical to a landlord’s success in Detroit Court.
