N.C. State Court Revers Small Claim Court Decision In
Mecklenburg County Has Statewide Effect
The N.C. State Court reversed a small claim court decision against Stikeleather Realty & Investments Co. The ruling in small claim court, abated the rent, awarded tenant damages, and attorney fees for not having a carbon monoxide and smoke detector in a rental unit.
The N.C. State Court ruled the fact that a detector is not in the property by itself does not make the property unfit. In the past, small claims magistrates have abated rent, awarded tenant damages, and their attorney fees because of tenant claims even if the landlord had written evidence proving otherwise.
Legal Aid has asked the State Court to review this decision as they are very sad of this common sense ruling. This decision is fair and according to State Law. This decision will correct injustice done in the past. This decision will give clear guidance to rulings in the future.
Carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are required by N.C. Law in all rental units. It is the landlord’s responsibility to make sure a detector is in their unit at the signing of a new lease. It is the landlord responsibility to replace a detector if it goes bad. This is covered by N.C. Statue and should not be a magistrate decision.
