Tenant Permission Bill Heads to a Final Vote
The “tenant permission bill” or Senate Bill 107 is now on the Michigan House floor for a final vote before it is sent to the Governor for his signature. The bill modifies the current rental inspection laws to bring it into compliance with the U.S. Constitution 4th Amendment and with recent U.S. District Court rulings. Municipalities will no longer be able to enter a rental premises without the tenant’s permission to perform rental inspections or they obtain an administrative warrant as proscribed under law. The bill also clarifies or organizes the content of the current law with new language. The bill is up for a second reading in the House.
