Governor Whitmer Extends Order Suspending Evictions

Governor Whitmer Extends Order Suspending Evictions

(State of Michigan, May 16, 2020)

Lansing, MI – Governor Gretchen Whitmer today signed Executive Order 2020-85, which temporarily extends protections for tenants and mobile home owners from being evicted from their home during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s critical Michiganders can self-quarantine and continue staying safer at home without fear of being evicted,” Governor Whitmer said. “This Executive Order gives renters and mobile home owners some peace of mind as we continue to flatten the curve.”

Executive Order 2020-85 ensures tenants and mobile home owners can remain in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, even if they are unable to pay their rent. The order also relieves courts from certain statutory restrictions so they can stay eviction-related proceedings until after the COVID-19 emergency has passed.

Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/Coronavirus.
