Michigan Eviction Moratorium to Be Extended Again
The Michigan eviction moratorium is expected to be extended again until July 15th, 2020.
Actions related to evicting tenants cannot be taken until July 16th, 2020, except for the mailing of the Modified Demand for Payment that the RPOA has provided free and may be found here. Landlords may continue to use the Modified Demand for Payment form to make payment demands only.
The eviction moratorium for CARES “covered properties” is set to lift on July 25th, 2020. Only CARES “non-covered” properties will be able to take action on July 16th, 2020. Properties under the CARES Act include Section 8 voucher program participants.
Landlords may still evict for damages to the rental property. If a landlord feels they have a situation that meets that threshold, they are advised to contact an attorney to pursue the case.
The state-wide program for property manager and landlord assistance is scheduled to begin on July 16th, 2020. You can read about the program here.
