Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
It is illegal for a landlord to evict a tenant after the tenant complains to state or local authorities about the conditions of the property. Mich. Stat., Section(###) ###-####/a>. If you go to court and testify about what happened, the judge is not allowed to enter an eviction order.
The other option is to print a copy of the statute and show it to the landlord. It's possible you may be able to convince them to save the time and expense of filing a lawsuit they cannot win.
