    Renter's guide to Winston-Salem, NC

    Winston-Salem is the 4th largest city in North Carolina with close to 240,000 residents, resting near the middle of the state about 100 miles west of Raleigh. It’s also a short 30 miles west of Greensboro, and about 75 miles northeast of Charlotte.

    What was originally known a major tobacco town has since been transformed into a booming metropolis often referred to as the “City of Arts and Innovation” for its contributions to theater, fine arts, and technological research.

    The weather in Winston-Salem makes it a very pleasant place to live, as residents enjoy a beautiful spring and fall, with very mild winters and warm, sunny summers.  

    Tips for renting in Winston-Salem, NC

    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.
