The Michigan seven (7) day notice to quit may be used as a non-compliance warning offering the tenant the time period to comply or vacate the premises (according to § 600.5714).

The form may also be used if illegal activity has been recognized on the property (in accordance with § 554.134(4)) and the tenant has twenty-four (24) hours to remove themselves along with all their possessions. This document may only be given if the landlord filed a police report stating the illegal actions on behalf of the tenant.

How to Write

Step 1 – In the “TO:” section, enter the full name of the tenant. If there is more than one tenant/occupant, list their names as well.

Step 2 – In section one (1), print your name and enter the full address of the rental unit. Select the reason for the notice (end of tenancy, or violation). If the notice is being served due to a lease violation, enter a detailed description of the violation.

Note: If the actual address is different from the mailing address – be sure to make note of that.

Step 3 – In section two (2), enter the date that the tenant must move out by. In section four (4), enter your signature, the date, and a contact address/phone number.

Step 4 – At the bottom of the notice is the “Proof of Service” section. This section must be filled out after the tenant has received the notice. Enter the name of the person who served the notice, the date of service, and the name of the recipient of the notice. Select the delivery method, and then sign your name. The proof of service should be signed in the presence of a notary public. The notary public will then complete the remaining portion of the proof of service.
