Michigan 24 Hour Notice to Quit | Illegal Drug Activity

The Michigan twenty-four (24) hour notice to quit can be used by a landlord to evict a tenant for illegal drug activity conducted on the premises of the rented property. The landlord must serve the document to the tenant to provide them with all pertinent eviction information. After receiving the notice, the tenant will have twenty-four (24) hours to vacate the dwelling. If the tenant does not move-out within twenty-four (24) hours, the landlord can seek legal recourse by filing a Complaint to Recover Possession of Property (a.k.a. “eviction complaint”) with the court.

Note: The notice may only be implemented if the rental contract contains a provision permitting lease termination for illegal drug activity. Furthermore, the landlord must file a police report stating that the tenant or another person under their authority has conducted illegal drug activity on the rented property.
