The Michigan notice to comply or quit is a letter used by a landlord to inform a tenant of their lease violations. Specified in the notice will be a description of the violations and the date by which they must be corrected. Upon receiving the letter, the tenant will have until the end of the notice period to either fix their non-compliances or vacate. If the notice period expires and the violations remain, or the tenant has not vacated the premises, the landlord has the option of filing a complaint with the district court to evict the tenant.
No current Michigan statutes govern general lease violations; the landlord should consider the provisions of the rental agreement when determining whether the lease has been violated and the period in which said violations must be corrected. If the tenant has damaged the leased property or created a serious health hazard, the landlord should instead serve the tenant with the 7-Day Notice to Comply or Quit.
