Landlords Misusing Tenant’s Security Deposit Money

Benjamin Franklin looks up from a crisp $100 bill. Maybe this is part of a security deposit.

Security Deposits: An Overview Most people are familiar with the concept of a security deposit. Landlords typically request these deposits as collateral against the risk that tenants will cause damage. This makes a lot of sense. If a tenant moves in and trashes the property, the landlord can lawfully withhold their security deposit to make repairs. What if the tenant skips town without paying their last month's rent? The landlord can withhold the deposit for that as well. But what if the landlord is withholding the entire deposit and charging more on top of that for no reason? What if, once the...

Help! My landlord is awful!

The fungus we don't want among us! Fungi: they're pretty when they're out in the woods, delicious if you know what you're doing with them in the kitchen, and deadly if you don't. And, most importantly, you DO NOT want them growing in your house! Mold and mildew are close relatives of mushrooms, and they are one of the things we get the most calls about from unhappy tenants. But what are a tenant's options when their landlord won't fix the mold--or the rat infestation, the broken steps, the heater, or the air conditioner? It turns out that North Carolina is...

  When Roommates Go Bad   Having roommates can be so much more fun than living alone, and save a ton of money. But roommates can also drive each other crazy! If the problem is that the roommates never do dishes, leave the toilet seat up, and host the occasional wild party, the solution is probably to either come up with some ground rules or learn to live with it.   What if the problems become more serious? What if your roommate never pays rent, trashes the house, or starts doing something illegal on the premises? The first step is simple: tell them to...

How to Evict a Tenant in North Carolina

    The most common reason for a landlord to evict a tenant is if the tenant fails to pay rent. Another reason may be if the tenant stays in the property after the lease has run out. This is called a “holdover tenant.” But how exactly does a landlord evict a tenant? 1. Give notice to the tenant.   The landlord needs to make the tenants aware that they will try to evict them. The tenants also need to know why the landlord is trying to evict them. The landlord should look closely at the lease to see how to do this. It should...

Commercial Landlord Tenant Law: Listen to the Lease!

  Landlords and tenants in commercial leases have the same goal: staying open for business! But we all know that despite people’s best intentions, things can go wrong. Commercial leases are no exception. Let’s talk about some “Do’s” and “Don’t’s” in commercial landlord tenant law. Read the Lease!   According to professionals like the solicitors Cavan town, a lease is a private contract between two parties. A good lease should account for all of the problems that might arise in a landlord/tenant relationship. Landlords should make sure that the lease clearly spells out the procedure they can follow if needed. For instance, what can...
