My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Michigan.
I live on a private drive that isn't plowed by the city. My lease states that it is the landlord's responsibility to remove snow from the driveways, and from the private road (which is about 200 yds to the main road.) When I attempted to leave for work this morning, I could not get out. I shoveled my driveway (which is not my responsibility) but it was pointless because the road was not plowed anyway. This means I could not get to work, meaning I am losing a day of pay, in addition to the disciplinary measures taken by my employer for calling in. I believe the law says something like about "snow of a sufficient quantity to be plowed within a reasonable time." But isn't the fact that the road is impassable proof that the plowing is unreasonable? Do I have any legal options here?
