What is the eviction procedure in Michigan?

Asked about 2 years ago - Allen Park, MI

My friend was given a 30 day notice to quit July 11th signed by the district manager. It was not signed by a judge. Eviction came after my friend reported two burglaries. She wants to leave; doesn't feel safe. She needs more time to relocate.
There is no lease. There have been no issues before the burglaries. Police determined an inside job; no forced entry.
If a judge's signature is needed, when does 30 days begin - July 11 or date judge orders?

    Answered . Your friend has a month to month lease and therefore can be asked to move out with 30 days notice in writing. If she doesn't move out then the court process would begin shortly there after. Your friend should call an attorney to discuss her legal rights.

    Answered . As a general rule, on a 'no lease'/at will/month to month only requires 30 days notice in writing. Check Michigan's easy to read handbook at http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/publica...

    SInce your friend wants to leave, shouldn't be a problem. A judge would only be involved if your friend was being kicked out, or evicted. Here, it appears the lease is simply being terminated--on a month to month with no lease, either party can terminate the lease for any reason on proper notice, which it sounds like your friend got.
