Landlord-tenant law in North Carolina involves the rights and duties of both the landlord and the tenant who rents an apartment, house, condo, land, or commercial property.

Elements of both real property law and contract law often control the resolution of landlord tenant disputes in [city, state].


Tenants have duties including preserving the premises, and paying rent. The landlord has the duty to deliver possession and a covenant of quiet enjoyment.


During a dispute, the tenant may have defenses including constructive eviction, breach of covenant, and retaliatory eviction.
