My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: MI
Without an order of eviction, my landlord, without our permission, entered our leased home and took everything while we were gone for the weekend.
We called 911 and the Deputy came to the scene with the landlord. Huh?
After the deputy determined this to be a landlord tenant issue, the deputy told us that the landlord was within their right to enter and change the locks because it was their house and we had no choice but to leave with the landlord standing in the doorway of our house and waving to us.
Deputy says everything here is CIVIL...
Nothing for him to do.
We lost our home and everything in it but the deputy claims that he can't do anything because HOME INVASION and BURGLARY is a civil matter and that we have to take it up in court by filing a civil suit.
We were also denied a police report.
MICHIGAN LANDLORDS TAKE NOTE!!!!
DON'T GO SHOPPING FOR FURNITURE! JUST SWING BY YOUR RENTAL WHEN THE TENANT IS NOT THERE AND TAKE WHAT YOU WANT! IT ISN'T A CRIME IN ISABELLA COUNTY! IT'S A CIVIL MATTER THAT THE TENANT WON'T HAVE THE CASH TO PURSUE!
AS AN ADDED BONUS YOU CAN ALSO MAKE YOUR TENANT'S HOMELESS AT THE SAME TIME AND WITHOUT DUE PROCESS ! ! ! !
ISABELLA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES DON'T MIND BEING A LITTLE FLEXIBLE WITH YOUR TENANT'S CIVIL RIGHTS ! ! !
