North Carolina Evictions Update
with Chris Loebsack
(Apartment Association of Western North Carolina, Greenville Area Property Managers Association, Greater Charlotte Apartment Association, Greater Fayetteville Apartment Association, Piedmont Triad Apartment Association, Triangle Apartment Association, Wilmington Apartment Association)
In a memo released this past weekend, North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley expanded a list of new restrictions on courthouse activity that will include eviction hearings. The new restrictions, which apply to all of the state’s one hundred counties for the next thirty days, come in response to the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the state and are meant to both combat the spread of the virus, as well as to provide respite for low-income renters and those facing evictions during the crisis.
The Chief Justice has clarified that all small claims hearings across the state will be continued to future dates, sometime in the coming weeks. It is unclear at this moment when this will happen, but in the meantime, each county courthouse currently remains open for transactional business that does not require in-person hearings or other meetings with Courthouse staff or Judges.
Space will be limited. While this webinar is free, please register to reserve your spot! The webinar will be recorded and available on our website for those unable to attend.
