Are Leases Legally-binding Contracts?
Be aware that a lease can be a legally binding contract, and failure to perform all of the obligations undertaken in the contract may subject a tenant to loss of a security deposit, liability for payment of rent and attorneys’ fees, and other expenses in some cases. Seek independent legal advice whenever you have questions about your responsibilities under a lease. CLICK HERE to view a series of pamphlets on various legal topics, including landlord/tenant law, from the North Caroline Bar Association.
