I'm about to venture out and get my first tenant and I want to put the best foot forward. I will be managing the property myself to get started and I am curious if there is anything I should pay special attention in terms of processes and forms as a landlord in the great state of Pure Michigan? Grand Rapids in particular.
I would join the RPOA on Michigan Ave (also online). They offer forms and advice
Make sure you read the Michigan Landlord/Tenant Guide and the GR landlord rules.
I will consult with my local REIA.
EZlandlordforms is a pretty good place to start. It customizes by state and prompts you for the rules. It’s comes at a small fee but has the applications, background checks, and everything else under the sun.
