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.

It looks like you’re ballin’ on a budget, but you like your alone time at home. There can be huge differences between a small apartment and a studio apartment. If you like unwinding at home after a long day and cooking on the weekends, we recommend you to search for single bedroom apartments, where you will have a bit more space and a separate kitchen. Let’s face it, moving into a studio just because it’s a good deal it’s not always a good idea. Yes, probably your apartment will be more expensive than the cheapest pad in Winston - Salem, NC which is going for $650, but it’s hard to put a price on feeling comfortable in your own home.
