Hello,
I do apologize but I do not provide phone calls as an option for assistance. I can either type out my response, or I can offer, as an additional service, a Skype conversation provided that you understand that it does not create any sort of an attorney client relationship and that I am not acting as counsel for you. Please advise.

nothing at this point, I am trying to be careful and approach without any conflict, I was thinking about talking to her and typing a letter.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If she becomes stubbon and doesn't want to leave then I need to prepare.
Real Estate Lawyer: Dimitry Esquire, Attorney replied 2 years ago
Legally speaking she has spent enough time on the premises that she is deemed to be a lawful occupant. That means that she is entitled to a full formal legal process if she decides to remain. You need to give her WRITTEN notice to quit the premises. Under North Carolina law you need to give her at least seven days notice if you claim that she is a 'hold-over' tenant. Please see N.C. Gen. Stat. §§ 42-25.6, specifically N.C. Gen. Stat. § 42-26 This notice must be either mailed to her (if you do, send it certified so that it can be shown she received it and got notice), or physically handed to her with evidence that she received it, or affixed to her door. Then if she still won't leave you'd need to file locally for an eviction complaint. The judge will schedule a hearing (she will be served and can appear)). if the judge finds for you, you will receive a 'writ of possession' which you can give to the sheriff and the sheriff will forcibly remove her if she is still on premises. Sincerely, ***** *****

Wow, she is only a girlfriend, not a wife, Let me review the statues.
Real Estate Lawyer: Dimitry Esquire, Attorney replied 2 years ago
She is still an occupant. And is entitled to such rights. Same codes would be used for any non-paying party, be it a relative or a friend. Please take care and be well, and kindly do not forget to positively rate my for the work that I have done on your behalf. Thank you! Sincerely, ***** *****

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
