We help North Carolinians live in safe and affordable homes:
- Public and Subsidized Housing: We handle cases involving evictions from or admissions to public and other federally subsidized housing complexes, and terminations of housing subsidies like Section 8 housing vouchers.
- Private Housing: We handle cases involving self-help evictions (landlords trying to evict without going through a legal process), habitability (landlords failing to keep a property safe and in good repair), and evictions from mobile home lot tenancies.
