Landlord-Tenant Cases Encompass:
Most of these issues are small claims court matters, but the process is much more complex than most people realize. Whether you are a landlord or tenant, a knowledgeable attorney can help avoid many common pitfalls.
Several landlord-tenant laws in North Carolina affect both property owners and renters, including:
- tenant protections against landlord retaliation for tenant exercising a legal right, such as complaining about an unsafe living condition (see North Carolina State Laws Prohibiting Landlord Retaliation for details)
- special protections for tenants who are victims of domestic violence (see North Carolina State Laws Affecting Tenants in Domestic Violence Situations)
- procedures for how landlords must handle abandoned property left behind by tenants, and
- fair housing rights (discrimination is also prohibited by federal and, often, local law—see the Housing Discrimination section of the Nolo site for details).
