My family moved to North Carolina from West Coast. We signed a lease after looking at photos and description on Zi****.com but when we arrived almost every wall inside the house was spot painted. Landlord offered to repaint the house which we really appreciated but our family would had to stay in a... Read more »
Without reading your lease and the communication prior to the signing of the lease I cant give an opinion on your options. Take all of the related documents to a local lawyer and they can give you your options.
It's a huge home that's not had any interest from potential buyers the entire decade I've been squatting there... although the powers always on and I've only had one encounter with the real estate agent that is employed by a company... I live in a little town where mansions are... Read more »
verbal agreement with our cousin over five-plus years ago to live in the (questionable habitable) house rent-free. We are not interested in being landlords and very concerned about the habitability of the property. We would like assistance with the rights of both parties.
Under your scenario, provided that you are now the owners of the property you have the right to revoke your cousin's ability to live there. There is likely a very minimal landlord-tenant relationship, so I would give at least a 7-day notice and hope that your cousin agrees to moe out otherwise...Read more »
The abandoned office is in Charlotte NC and was their only NC office. There is nobody here to receive the summons. Their HQ is in GA, where we know the summons will be received. I tried to file but the small claims clerk led me to believe that serving the HQ in GA would be problematic and out of... Read more »
Try contacting smaller firms, this is not likely something that you would need to pay large firm prices for anyways. Most landlord/tenant disputes never make it before a judge and are settled in front of the magistrate. Unless you are talking and a very large case any general practice lawyer is...Read more »
I moved into my home in February the first day I’ve moved in my roof has been leaking every time it rains heavy or constant my landlord claims every time the spot is patched but then it’s leaking once again. I’ve been paying him since now I’m tired of this spot leaking every time it rains... Read more »
What you need to do is ensure that you have made a written request for the repair (email or letter). Then have waited a reasonable amount of time to get it fixed. Then report the landlord to the local housing authority. They have the power to...Read more »
Given that there is no official lease between you and your employee, there is not much you can do as the law would say that your employee has the right to allow others to live there or even sub-lease from your employee. You need to get an official lease in place between you and your employee that...Read more »
You have not stated what estate you and the Deceased owned (tenants in common, life estate/remainder, etc.). The Deceased's Heirs own his share, if any. Did he have issue? If so, they are tenants with you. What about your Parents? You probably need a competent attorney to record an...Read more »
As always, you will get a more accurate and complete answer if you consult with a local attorney who has the time to understand all the facts behind your particular situation. That said, I don't see grounds to get a "civil order" (which isn't really a legal term). If both...Read more »
Unless he has a valid lease with you, if you tell him to leave and he does not, he is likely committing the crime of trespass. For that, you simply call local law enforcement and they should come arrest him and remove him from the property. However, law enforcement typically does not like to get...Read more »
Depends on whether there was will or not. If there was no will, the property will pass thru intestate succession laws. Who gets what depends on what family members there are and what there relationship to your spouse was. Even with a will, you can not be disinherited entirely in NC, so the...Read more »
To clarify is she an ex. We both are on the loan and deed. Were together 8 years. What is needed to be done to sell or buyout?? I no longer care to own house, want to sell. However, she will not have an adult conversation with me about it. What if she cannot obtain the house in her name only?
If you are not married, you are likely tenants in common. If so, there is really no need to 'discuss' it with her - she doesn't really have much choice, so you can essentially just tell her how things are going to be. If you want, her choices are pretty much limited to either...Read more »
The paperwork has Tenant and CoSigner on the lease, with Tenant's family listed as occupants. When filing for summary ejectment, do I need to include Tenant's wife and CoSigner's wife on the court paperwork?
May tenants refuse landlords' requests (i.e., entry of vendors) for non-essential maintenance (i.e., issues that do NOT pose harm or a threat to habitability, and that will NOT cause further degradation to property if left until a later date) (e.g., painting walls) to avoid contact with...

I received an email that my security deposit would be mailed out that week. Then a month later I was sent a bill stating I owed for damages. I was sent the itemized bill 48 days after the end of my lease.
A landlord has 30 days to issue an itemized statement regarding the application of the security deposit and/or return any unapplied security deposit. However, if the landlord's damages are not fully known in that time, they have to issue an interim accounting and then a final accounting within...Read more »
It isn't fully clear from your question whether you're inquiring about reimbursement of your hospital bill, or compensation as an injury victim. You could contact a North Carolina attorney to discuss the matter in further detail; most attorneys who handle injury cases generally offer free...Read more »
Ask for the 13,000. I assume you filed a police report and can document the value? Note that the value you'd get in court would be the value as they were. Tell them you expect the 13. Chances are they are trying to avoid an insurance claim.
