Michigan 30 Day Notice to Quit | Month to Month Tenancy

The Michigan thirty (30) day notice to quit can be put into effect by a landlord when terminating a month-to-month tenancy or similar rental agreement with no predetermined end date. Although no specific reason is needed to terminate the tenancy, the landlord must provide the tenant with a notice period equal to the interval between rent payments. If payments are made at periods of more than three (3) months, the tenant shall receive a notice period of one (1) month.

The landlord must serve the notice to the tenant and wait until the notice period expires before requiring the tenant to vacate. Failure of the tenant to vacate within the established timeframe provides the landlord with the right to file an eviction complaint in the district court of the county where the rental property is located.
