Landlord-Tenant Law

Effective North Carolina Landlord-Tenant Attorney

Solving legal issues for property owners and their tenants

As an experienced real estate litigator, Donald R. Fuller, JR., PLLC creates solutions for landlords and tenants. I successfully bring tenants comfort that they are living in a stable, well-maintained home, while preserving the profits and equity of landlords who are working hard to run a successful business. I have committed my substantial knowledge about real estate, contracts and property rights to helping North Carolina clients:

  • Draft rental leases
  • Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
  • Evict irresponsible or nonpaying tenants
  • Successfully defend against unjust evictions
  • Demand return of security deposits that have been unfairly held
  • Collect from nonpaying tenants
  • Uphold tenants’ rights against discrimination
  • Help landlords maintain the integrity and profitability of their properties

Drafting solid leases for property owners

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. I discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with North Carolina law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting tenants’ rights to security deposits

North Carolina law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, I can help you to collect what is due to you. I first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, I assertively defend your rights in court.

Resolving an eviction crisis

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, I help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, I protect your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, I help you to protect your property and your business.
