Michigan Real Estate Legislative Update: Eviction Notice by E-mail?

About a year ago I posted an article on a Michigan House Bill that would allow landlords to evict tenants by e-mail. Check out my article here.

I never reported back on that Bill, because it sat in the Judiciary Committee for the entire year.

Suffice it to say, that Bill was never enacted, but it’s come back in 2015 as HB 4038

Back on January 21, 2015 the Bill (in the exact same form) was introduced once again and referred to the Judiciary Committee. HB 4038 appears to have made some progress since the House Fiscal Agency deemed it worthwhile to issue a fiscal analysis.

I will be interested to see if the Bill makes progress this time around. I will be sure to keep you posted.

One Important Point

If enacted, landlords, property owners, and private investors will want to ensure that their lease agreements are updated to permit the service of such Notice of Eviction via e-mail.

The bill, in its current form would only allow service via e-mail based upon the landlord and tenant’s written agreement.

If your tenant doesn’t agree to that language, you don’t automatically have the right to send the notice via e-mail.
