As reported by the Michigan Bankers Association (MBA), the new Michigan Right of Inspection law is the first of its kind in the country. The law addresses an occupant's responsibliity to the new purchaser after a foreclosure. The intent is to circumvent the damages and vandelism that sometimes occurs during the redemption period, after the property is foreclosed, and allow the new purchaser to inspect the property at certain stages of the process. Governor Snyder signed adjustments to the bill on May 20, 2014.
“This new law addresses many of the issues by setting occupant responsibilities that pair with their statutory Right of Redemption and require notice to the holder of the sheriff’s deed as to when the occupant intends to leave the property to allow for inspections and ability to properly secure the premises,” The MBA reports.
