Michigan Roommate Agreement

The Michigan Roommate Agreement is a contract completed by two (2) or more roommates living within the same rental that sets the standard expectations among the roommates for the full duration of the lease.

Whether or not the agreement is legally binding depends on whether or not the roommates are all bound to the original lease signed with the landlord. If they are, rent will most likely not be included in the roommate contract, as rent is one of the few areas which could be argued in court; other day-to-day living subjects, such as cleaning, guest policy, or lights out, are almost always not enforceable in a court of law.
