Michigan Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The Michigan Standard Residential Lease, once negotiated and signed by a landlord and tenant(s), sets the agreed-upon conditions into effect for a standard length of time of one (1) year, although different durations can be established. Renters and landlords alike should be aware of Michigan’s Truth in Renting Act, which states required clauses within leases as well as conditions that cannot be stated in the agreement. The free lease contract available for download below coincides with all requirements of Michigan law.

Before signing a lease contract, the tenant(s) should be thoroughly screened using a rental application.
