North Carolina

State, County, Municipality: Statewide
Overview: There is no official order from an executive authority or from a court halting evictions, but the North Carolina governor provided further guidance on March 31, 2020 regarding eviction proceedings by order: “pursuant to the Chief Justice’s orders referenced above, there should be no new eviction proceedings until the orders expire.”  The expiration date on Chief Justice Cheri Beasley’s order (see below) is April 17, 2020.  The order further states that the Clerks of the Superior Court may, in their discretion, “delay, until regular court operations resume, issuing Writs of Possession for Real Property, which are the legal documents under which sheriff’s perform evictions.” The order “strongly encourage[s]” all Clerks of Superior Court “to follow the spirit” of the Chief Justice’s Order, and hold off on issuing writs of possession until April 17, 2020.

Finally, the order “strongly encourage[s]” property owners to work with tenants to “implement payment plans and avoid evictions…including cancelling pending evictions by notifying the relevant Sheriff’s Office.”  It also encourages “all lenders to work with property owners…to provide loan payment flexibility that enables property owners to avoid evictions of tenants.”

The next section covers “mortgage servicing entities,” and provides that those entities are urged to take the following reasonable and prudent actions to support those adversely impacted mortgagors: “1. Forbear mortgage payments for at least 180 days from their due dates and give mortgagors the option to extent loan terms by that number of days without a lump sum payment due at the end of the forbearance period. 2. Refrain from reporting late payments to credit reporting agencies for at least 180 days. 3. TO the extent possible under existing law, offer mortgagors an additional ninety (90) day grace period to complete trial loan modifications, and ensure that late payments during the COVID-19 pandemic do not affect their ability to obtain permanent loan modifications. 4. Waive late payment fees [for 90 days] 5. Postpone foreclosures and evictions for at least ninety (90) days. 6. Notify customers by various means, including but not limited to the entity’s website, apps, and (if authorized by the customer) texts or emails, to explain the above-listed assistance being offered to customers.”
