Renters expect their landlords will provide a safe and peaceful place for them to live. When there is a landlord/tenant dispute, tenants may feel there is no other way to protect their rights as a group. Renters in Michigan and elsewhere who feel their landlord has violated their rights or intimidated them into leaving can pursue legal means of protecting themselves as a group. They can also file suit individually if needed.
Whenever a tenant moves into a dwelling or establishment, that tenant may embark on making improvements to the property. Typically, the landlord gives permission for specific improvements, and an agreement between parties is reached. However, there may be instances where a landlord/tenant dispute erupts over the fate of property once a tenant has invested a great deal of time and money making improvements to the place. Michigan landlords and tenants may be interested in a story about a church at the center of such a dispute.
