Tips for Renting in Winston-Salem

Winston-Salem tenant regulations are governed by North Carolina state law, and are very similar to most other states and US tenant laws. However, North Carolina does have a slightly different policy when it comes to eviction notice. For monthly rentals, the eviction period is seven days; for a year-to-year rental, the minimum eviction notice is 30 days; and for mobile homes, the minimum eviction notice is 60 days.

North Carolina renters can also exercise their “right to repair and deduct,” meaning they can actually legally refuse to pay rent if major repairs (like an air conditioning unit) are left neglected.
