Michigan Real Estate Law Update: Landlords May Send Eviction Notice by E-mail

Happy Friday!

I’ve previously posted on the Michigan Bill introduced in the House that would allow Landlords to send Tenants eviction notices by E-mail – check out that article here

Yesterday, the Governor signed the Bill into Law.

The Story was reported by the Midland Daily News

The Law allows service via e-mail based upon the landlord and tenant’s written agreement.

I commented in March that I would be interested in seeing the Bill in its final form, you can check it out here

The law certainly provides a more detailed procedure as well as definitions than proposed by the original bill.

Take away for Property Owners/Landlords:

Landlords will want to update their standard Lease Agreements to provide for the option to send notice to quit tenancy by e-mail.

Further, Landlords must understand that a Tenant has the right to refuse to consent to e-mail service. A landlord cannot refuse a tenant simply because they don’t consent to e-mail service of an eviction notice.
