The Civil Bureau specializes in Landlord / Tenant Summons and Evictions for all of Washtenaw County.
When a Landlord needs to evict a Tenant(s), court papers must be filed to initiate the proceedings. The first step for the Landlord is to obtain a Landlord / Tenant Summons. This provides a court date for both the Landlord and the Tenant(s) to plead their case in front of a judge. If the judge finds in favor of the Landlord, an eviction is ordered. For more information regarding Landlord / Tenant and Eviction information, please see Michigan's Practical Guide for Tenants and Landlords.
