Our team has the right experience to help landlords resolve disputes with their tenants in a civil and mutually agreeable way.
If you own one or more rental properties, then you naturally want to make sure that you get the best return on that investment, and that your tenants abide by the stipulations in their rental agreements. At Tarantino Law, PLLC, we understand that relationships between landlords and tenants is not always easy, and we are here to provide the legal expertise and third-party perspective you need to find solutions to any disputes that may come up.
As part of our services in this area of the law, we want to make you aware of certain regulations that all landlords must abide by in the state of North Carolina. First, both federal and state fair housing acts require you to treat all tenants and potential tenants equally, without discriminating based on race, sex, national origin, religion, disability, skin color, or family status. Next, the amount you are permitted to take as a security deposit is strictly delineated, and is governed by additional rules about how to store it, how much you can deduct from it, and when you have to give it back. Landlords are also responsible for keeping the property in good repair and addressing any habitability concerns.
Our team understands that keeping all of these regulations straight can be confusing, and that dealing with problematic tenants can be even harder. If you are a landlord and are having difficulties with your tenants, give us a call to consult with our experts about your options.
