Landlord-Tenant Law

Our attorneys have represented property managers and landlords in thousands of evictions, collections, and related matters in both residential and commercial matters.

Our firm’s landlord/tenant practice includes lease drafting and negotiation of leases, filing for eviction on all grounds provided by statute, pursuing tenants for collection, as well as advising our clients on compliance with the frequently changing landlord-tenant laws. We maintain an active, extensive, and diverse landlord tenant practice representing clients ranging from owners of a single rental unit to large apartment complexes, management companies, realtors, condominium associations, and commercial industrial park owners.

Our attorneys are actively involved in the local landlord tenant community through membership on the Government Awareness and the Political Action Committees of the Triangle Apartment Association, and participation including lecturing and writing for the Triangle Real Estate Investors Association and the Wake County Apartment Association.  Attorney Norm Praet publishes the most prolific North Carolina Landlord Tenant Law Blog at
