Michigan tenant screening records contain data from as early as 1951 depending on courts searched and the type of offense registered. Kent County and Oakland County are the only counties with publicly accessible arrest logs. Information obtained through screening cannot be used to alter a current rental agreement, unless the tenant is shown to have breached said agreement.
