North Carolina Property and Real Estate Laws

Property and real estate laws typical concern things like landlord-tenant relations, homestead protection from creditors, and related matters. Laws regulating the rental market protect both landlords and tenants. In North Carolina, for example, landlords must return a tenant's security deposit within 30 days of the termination of the lease and limits the amount landlords may charge for a deposit to two months rent.  Also, North Carolina homestead laws don't specify an acreage limit, but allow up to $1,000 worth of property to be declared a homestead.
