Customer Question

We have been asking and waiting for repairs in the house we rent in Fayetteville NC for 2 yrs almost. The property manager has continued to miss or cancel appointments after we make arrangements to be available. The repairs were never completed. Now we are a few months from the end of our lease and have decided not to renew. The manager now wants to impose a mandatory walk through to access repairs on a date and at a time that she has already been informed that I work from our home office. She has stated she will use her key to gain entry if needed. I am currently ill with a highly contagious bacterial infection possibly caused by one of the issues in our home and don't need the added stress of her forcing her way into our home. What can we do?

You should tell her that due to your medical condition, she is not permitted to enter the premises. Therefore, you can tell her that the damage that exists is well documented as not your fault and you demand a full return of your deposit promptly upon your moveout date. That is the legal requirement under North Carolina law. You can also tell her that you may have a claim against the owner because you got sick because of the conditions in the house, and you are consulting a lawyer about making that claim.Please rate 4 or 5 and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
