Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to helpAlso, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen. The rule is not the same. Or, rather, for commercial tenants, there is no analogy to NC General Statutes Chapter 42, Art 6 (so 42-50 to 42-58).NC General statute Art 6 limits how much money a landlord can charge for deposit on a residential rental. There is no such limit for a commercial lease...so the parties are free to negotiate this. There is no limit in the commercial space. Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

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.
