Questions and Answers on: Renting Residential Real Estate
This brochure focuses on questions that frequently arise during the landlord-tenant relationship. Although the term “apartment” is used throughout, be aware that the questions and answers apply equally to other types of residential rental properties.
For information on tenant security deposits, unlawful discrimination in rental housing, condominiums and townhouses, and other consumer housing issues, visit the Commission’s website (www.ncrec.gov). Other written materials are available from the Consumer Protection Section of the Attorney General’s Office. If you are a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, review the brochure, Questions and Answers on: North Carolina Military Personnel Residential Lease Termination. For fair housing (discrimination) issues, call the North Carolina Human Relations Commission or your local fair housing agency. In addition, you may wish to review Chapter 42 of the N.C. General Statutes and consult a private attorney.
