A Michigan 7-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment), also called a “Demand,” is a rental notice used to inform a tenant of unpaid rent, which they will have 7 days to cure the breach. If the tenant decides to move out within 7 days, they may still be liable to pay rent. The state of Michigan provides court-approved notices for landlords to use which can be downloaded on the left side of this page.

After completing the form and filling in all the necessary information including the tenant’s name and address, amount of money needed to cure the breach, the landlord’s name and signature, use one of the following methods to serve the tenant:

  • The best choice, if possible, is by personal delivery.
  • If the tenant is not present, it is recommended to deliver the notice to another adult present on the property that will relay the notice to the tenant.
  • Send by first-class mail to the tenant’s address.

How to Write

Step 1 – The landlord must fill in ALL black fields. If completing the forms on your computer, all empty fields are marked in blue. Start with the first field by entering the tenant’s name and address.

Step 2 – As the landlord/owner, enter your name and the amount of rent the tenants owe on line number 1. In the box below, enter the tenant’s full address, including any descriptions.

Step 3 – The forms then go on to inform the tenant that they have basic rights to challenge the landlord if they believe they have a good reason not to be evicted.

Step 4 – To complete the notice, the landlord must date, sign, and write their contact address.

Step 5 – Once delivery has been made to the tenant, complete the Certificate of Service. Completing the certificate is important as it shows proof of delivery. Fill out both pages and give the second page as a copy to the tenant.
