Evictions During NC State of Emergency – Update 3.16.20.01

Following our email to you on Friday discussing an Order from the NC Supreme Court’s Chief Justice, we received last night this updated Order from the Chief Justice and wanted to pass it along to you as soon as possible today.

The Chief Justice clarified yesterday that all small claims hearings across the state will be continued to future dates, sometime in the coming weeks. No date certain for these is known at this point, however.  For any current cases where we are already working with a tenant or opposing counsel, we’ll continue to try and reach a resolution for you; but otherwise, our team will let you know as soon as we have received word of the new date for each case.

For new cases that become necessary this month, feel free to continue your usual case submission protocols and timelines; our staff is ready to review and process new cases for you promptly, so that they can be filed as soon as possible and thereby secure a “place in line” for whenever actual hearings are permitted to resume.

We thank you for your trust and continued business.

Kind regards,
