Eviction by Email? in Michigan

The Michigan House of Representatives recently passed a bill that would allow landlords to start the eviction process by serving a seven-day demand for possession by email. Currently, a demand for possession must be sent by first-class mail or personally delivered to either the tenant or someone of suitable age and discretion at the tenant's address.

Under House Bill 4038, so long as the tenant has sent the landlord an email consenting to service by email and the landlord has responded to that email, the landlord may send a seven-day notice to the tenant's email address.

The bill passed the House on March 18, 2015, and has been referred to the Senate Committee on Judiciary.
