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.

Do tenants still have to pay rent during this moratorium?
The short answer is yes. The moratorium on evictions does not affect the obligation of a tenant to pay rent; and tenants are still required to make all their rent payments. A tenant who fails to pay the rent can still be evicted – just not until the moratorium is lifted.
Do you need real estate legal advice?
Problem tenants, whether involving residential or commercial property, can be among the most frustrating and costly aspects of being a landlord. If you’re having trouble with a tenant, it’s fine to try and work things out between the two of you, but sometimes eviction is necessary. Every step of the eviction process should be overseen by an experienced eviction attorney.
