GREENSBORO, NC — You think you should get your security deposit back. But your landlord is keeping it. Which one of you is right?
A few years ago, Rent.com did a survey of a thousand renters: 26% of renters were denied their security deposits and 36% of renters said the landlord gave no explanation of why.
In other states, that may fly. But not in North Carolina. State law (NC Statute 42) requires landlords to refund your security deposit in 30 days or give you an itemized list of charges.
And while this is the law, the only real way to enforce it is to take your landlord to small claims court. According to a Fair Housing Investigator with the City of Greensboro, a security deposit is for “beyond normal wear and tear”.

The judge set his bond at $10 million.
Carter is accused of luring a delivery driver to a house on Farlow Drive Sunday night before shooting and killing him.
