I rent a home in North Carolina. I have been out of hot water for 8 days, 7 of those the landlord has been aware of. They just contacted me yesterday saying they assigned my work order to a company for repair. They have sent 2 emails with 2 different company names.
JA: OK. The Real Estate
Lawyer will need to help you with this. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: The company contacted me today saying that they will need to look at it and give a quote. They came, looked and quoted my rental company. The repair was approved. They stated they will need to replace the water heater. I asked them for their North Carolina plumbing
license and they stated they do not have one. They are relying on another companies General Contractors
license, which does not cover plumbing anyways.
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: I am in North Carolina
JA: Is there anything else the Real Estate Lawyer should be aware of?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Real Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
