Landlord/tenant dispute: Carbon monoxide in home a risk

In any relationship between a landlord and a tenant, there are standards that must be met to ensure the health and welfare of the occupants of a rental property. Some Michigan landlords do not honor these protocols, putting the lives of tenants at risk. A recent landlord/tenant dispute involves allegations that a landlord failed to ensure the safety of her tenants.

Landlord/tenant dispute finally results in eviction

For one landlord in another state, the fight to get tenants legally evicted was a long and complicated process. The landlord/tenant dispute took months to resolve and no less than 10 court appearances. Michigan landlords may benefit from understanding how the case unfolded and what procedures finally ended the ordeal.

Management of vacation property can cause landlord/tenant issues

A real estate transaction or management arrangement can lead to a dispute among the parties involved for any number of reasons. While leases and purchase agreements are typically pretty clear about management details and property matters in Michigan, any discord can result in a dispute that requires legal support or guidance. Landlord/tenant matters, including vacation property disputes, can turn into time-consuming and costly endeavors without experienced and focused legal guidance.

Landlord/tenant dispute at center of recent Michigan eviction

Most landlord/tenant issues can be avoided when leases and contracts are well-prepared and both sides are clear about responsibilities and expectations. However, even when there are leases in place, landlord/tenant disputes or a landlord's disregard for outlined responsibilities can occur and require legal intervention. Apartment tenants in Michigan are currently dealing with a landlord who allegedly did not live up to his responsibilities, and they claim they are being evicted as a result.

Fate of seniors on the line in landlord/tenant dispute

When a landlord decides to sell a building, the fate of those who live there can get complicated. A dispute may erupt and halt the plans if tenants feel blindsided or unfairly treated by the owner of the building. Michigan elderly who live in senior living facilities may not be immune to this type of scenario and can become the participants in a landlord/tenant dispute that results in litigation.

When a tenant engages in illegal activity

Finding out that a tenant engaged in illegal activity on the property they are renting can be a very alarming discovery for a landlord. When a landlord makes such a discovery in regards to one of their tenants, it can be very important for the landlord to respond properly.

Would legalizing demands for payment by email improve collections?

If you've been a landlord in Michigan for long, you've probably had to deal with at least one eviction where you ended up losing money. One situation in which landlords lose out, however, may come as a surprise: Your noncompliant tenant leaves before you get a chance to serve an eviction notice.
