Am I required to have Renters Insurance?
- Tenants are not required but are strongly encouraged to obtain Renters Insurance to protect their household goods. Your decision, yes or no, does not impact our Firm or the homeowner / landlord. So, although Renters Insurance is recommended, it is not enforced or tracked by Park Avenue Properties.
I’m moving out before the end of my lease. Do I still have to pay rent?

How can I renew my lease?

I am not renewing my lease. How do I submit a notice to vacate?

What is the procedure for vacating my property?
- Begin by submitting your notice to vacate. Your property manager will then contact you to begin the move out process.
How do I get my security deposit back?
- If you stay for the entire lease term and you have paid all rent due, the landlord may deduct from your security deposit only the actual cost of repairing any damage which you have done to the property. Within 30 days after the termination of your tenancy, Park Avenue Properties must send you either a full refund of your deposit or a written itemized accounting of any deductions along with any remaining refund amount. If the full amount of damage cannot be determined within 30 days, our firm may send you a written interim accounting of deductions claimed, followed by a final accounting no later than 60 days following the end of the tenancy. It is important to provide us a correct forwarding address.
The property I am renting has gone into foreclosure. What are my rights as a tenant?
- From the North Carolina Real Estate Commission, “Tenants residing in a property containing less than 15 rental units, which is being sold in a foreclosure proceeding, may terminate the lease and move out without penalty or breach of the lease. However, the tenant must set the termination date at least 10 days or more after the date of the formal notice of sale from the Superior Court. Not all individuals who are renting a home want to move out immediately after the foreclosure sale. Since 2009, a federal law allows some leases to survive a foreclosure. In these cases, a tenant has the option to stay until the end of the lease. However, in cases where the tenant is renting month-to-month or the buyer of the foreclosed property intends to live in the property instead of buying it as an investment or rental property, the law allows the buyer to terminate the remaining lease term, but only after giving the tenant a 90-day notice to vacate the home.”
