36th District Court Extends Moratorium on Evictions Due to COVID-19

Jun 26, 2020

While the 36th District Court previously issued a moratorium on evictions on March 13, 2020, the Court has now extended the moratorium to coincide with Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-134.

The temporary suspension regarding evictions will continue through July 15, 2020. During this time, it is prohibited for any person to enter a residential property to remove or exclude a tenant from the premises, except when the tenant poses a substantial risk to another person or an imminent risk to property. Furthermore, while a tenant still has an obligation to pay rent under a lease, a landlord may not personally serve a demand for payment of rent during this time.
