Document Last Modified: 10/5/2018
This document is important for landlords and tenants in East Lansing, as it addresses critical roles for both parties. There are several areas where the landlord must make a determination of the responsible party for certain tasks. Completing this form should help the landlord and tenant understand these roles.
Within the city of East Lansing, rental properties must display a valid rental license. This is the first of several provisions addressed within this special addendum for East Lansing. Once filled in, the document will outline information including the allowed number of occupants and which areas are designated as sleeping rooms. The document includes not only the landlord’s regulations for parking, but also parking laws that the city has in place. This addendum codifies the responsible party for items such as trash collection, grass cutting, leaf raking, and snow shoveling. For these responsibilities, the landlord must decide whether the landlord or the tenant will be performing the maintenance. There are specific parameters outlined by the city that must be met, for example, such as the length of lawn grass or how quickly snow must be removed from sidewalks. In the event that the tenant will be performing this type of property upkeep, the landlord is responsible for providing appropriate tools.
This addendum also allows the landlord to assign an agent to care for the property. The document additionally addresses pets and homeowner associations. The expectations and infractions regarding public nuisances and party litter are clearly stated, and give the city and the landlord recourse for tenants not in compliance with these regulations.
At the bottom of the addendum, landlords and tenants must both sign and date the document. This two page document is easily added as an addendum to our premium Michigan lease.
