What are my duties as a tenant?

You found the perfect two-bedroom, two-bath house in a great North Carolina suburban neighborhood, and it even has a plot in the backyard for a garden. You hit it off with the landlord and feel confident signing the initial one-year lease agreement. Whether this is the first time you have ever rented a place of your own or it is the tenth house you have leased, here are some important tips to keep in mind when you move in.

Contractual privileges given to government agencies

Securing a contract with a government partner is a big get for any company. Such organizations tend to be reliable, and your company's association with them will no doubt boost its reputation. Yet as many of the clients that we here at the Triangle Law Group have worked with in the past can attest to, there are certain risks that come with working with government agencies. One of these is the potential that they could walk away from your agreement for almost any reason (including those that you may feel are not justified). 

What are the duties of the tenant in North Carolina?

While a landlord in North Carolina has an obligation to maintain a property to ensure safety and proper function, your tenant has responsibilities, too. According to the North Carolina Department of Justice, in addition to paying rent as outlined in the lease, your tenant is also expected to  provide the basic maintenance that comes along with living there in order to enforce your obligations.

Did you pay top dollar for inferior construction materials?

You can hire the best architect, the best general contractor and the best construction workers in the Raleigh area, but it may mean nothing if the materials used are inferior, counterfeit or substandard. Perhaps the word counterfeit caught your attention. People counterfeit money and designer goods, not construction materials. Right?
