Almost 30% of Detroit landlords who represent their-self fail at their first attempt to evict tenants in 36th District Court. This is mostly due to technical mistakes made in the eviction process. Starting over in court costs time and money.
We help residential and commercial landlords evict problem tenants due to non-payment of rent or non-compliance with a lease.
We handle all phases of the eviction process starting with the preparation and filing of the summons and complaint, arranging for service by the court officers. We handle court appearances and any motions related to the complaint. Once an eviction order is obtained we arrange for the placement of the order with the sheriff for execution.
Landlords - Keep in mind that although eviction trials are usually quick and deal with the issue of either non payment of rent or possession, they are real trials nevertheless. Evidence needs to be properly presented, authenticated and argued. Landlord cases may get dismissed for improper 30 days notice.

If you want to start the process of evicting a tenant in Detroit, you can serve your tenant first with an Eviction Notice (7 days or 30 days) . Depending on your situation, this notice may or may not have to include the reason or reasons for eviction:
For example, if the tenant is failing to do something—such as pay rent—the notice will have to state this and state a time and manner in which the tenant has to pay rent in order to avoid eviction. If your tenant corrects the problem, you no longer have cause for eviction. If your tenant does not remedy the problem within the time provided, you may file an complaint for eviction in court.
If the notice does not need to have a reason or reasons for the eviction—such as a 30-day notice to move out of a month-to-month tenancy—you may file an lawsuit as soon as the notice period ends.
