Do you own a rental property in Michigan? These affordable Residential Lease Form templates make it easy to show, rent and lease the premises to tenants. Save time with standardized forms, and save money on costly legal fees.

As a landlord, you are required by the Michigan Truth in Renting Act to ensure that any written lease or tenancy agreement you use does not contain provisions that violate the Act. If a provision is found to be in violation, that provision will be deemed to be void, and you must change it to conform with the Act within 20 days after being notified in writing of the violation.

Michigan leases must also contain a termination provision that allows seniors and persons who are unable to live independently to terminate the lease with 60 days' written notice if a doctor certifies that they are not capable of independent living, or if they become eligible to move into subsidized seniors housing.
