Landlord-Tenant Matters Archives

Meth lab on property 'cooks up trouble' between landlord and tenant

As many residential property owners know, when it comes to accepting tenants, it's important to pick someone who is trustworthy and hopefully will not make a headache for you in the future. But despite many landlords' best efforts, sometimes a bad apple sneaks into the bunch which can sometimes create huge problems for not only property owners but for the entire neighborhood as well.

Senior citizens protest against landlord for upkeep of rental properties

We can never stop the news from happening; everyone in Michigan knows that. But when we hear a news story about poor living conditions and property managers who seem to be avoiding their responsibilities, most residents in Michigan can only hope that it's not happening to them.

How keeping too many pets can get you in trouble with your landlord

As many Michigan tenants know, many apartment buildings have strict pet policies that if broken, can cause you to become evicted from your property. But as we'll see in a few moments, sometimes you may be evicted not for what type of pet you brought onto your property but how many you were keeping.

Saving money in 2013 by negotiating your lease

Imagine that you are a renter-or maybe you already are one-at a Michigan apartment building. You love your unit; it has everything you could want as far as amenities, as well as a few extras you didn't think you would end up liking. But your rent has increased since the first time you signed your lease and now that unit in the apartment down the street, though unappealing at first, is starting to look like a better-and cheaper-option.

Celebrity actress moves to hotel to avoid eviction

Readers of our blog know that we often times try to steer away from celebrity gossip unless we know that a story relates to the residents of Michigan. For apartment tenants in Huntington Woods and beyond, this next story could make some people reread their lease agreements and be leery of what their neighbors could be saying about them behind their backs.

Tenants sue after enduring 7 months without gas for cooking

As people here in Michigan are aware, landlord-tenant disputes can happen anywhere; and although many of them can be resolved without assistance from legal representation, some cases are simply too difficult to sort out without the help of a court judge.

Parking structure at the center of messy litigation in Pontiac

The city of Pontiac, several miles northwest of Detroit, is continuing its legal dispute with the Ottawa Towers office buildings this year over the use of an adjacent parking garage.

Legal mistakes to avoid when becoming a landlord

So you've decided to own your own commercial property and become a landlord. You may already be aware of the main things you'll be responsible for: handling rent payments, maintenance issues, etc. But what you might not be aware of is that there are extensive legal requirements you're responsible for as well.

Couple sues gas company for breach of contract

It's very rarely a surprise to some Michigan farmers when companies and land developers come to their properties and ask to use some of their land. Whether it be for resources or because they want to outright buy it, these businesses must enter into a agreement with the property owner and generally sign a contract once all the Ts have been crossed.

Marijuana laws and the landlord

Marijuana laws have been getting a great deal of attention in the news in recent months, and supporters of the movement recently won a number of landmark victories on Election Day. Medical marijuana poses certain risks for landlords, however; legal complications that could leave building owners open to lengthy landlord-tenant disagreements or even federal prosecution.
