Customer Question

how log does it take to get the actual response to my question when asked?
JA: What state is the property located in? And has anyone consulted a local attorney about this?
Customer: North Carolina ...no but I know the law and just need to find a certain statute but I need an immediate answer as I am at the court house and ready to file my motion
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: no It is a generic question I just need to know that if a landlord was granted possession 2/21 and acceted the rent in full and it was paid and greater than the amount on the order, can they then file a writ in may. The tenant's account is at $0.00 and they filed on 5/5 and we have a pending writ to be executed this week. Where is it in the law that if they accept payment they have to seek possession again
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no I need an immediate answer though

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.

If you tender the rent before a final eviction that is accepted that is a defense.

(N.C. Gen. Stat. § 42-33.)
