The provisions of the CARES act ended 7/25/2020 which means landlords are able to resume stricter enforcement of rental payments, including charging late fees. Landlords are also allowed to file evictions for non-payment of rent under specific rules and conditions which are controlled by NC Executive Order 142. Sweyer Property Management continues to monitor the changes to these laws to help guide owners and tenants through these processes.
Landlords are again able to send official notices to vacate to tenants with specific move out dates. Property managers will work with owners to begin sending these notices the last week of July.

Now that NC has entered into Phase 2 of reopening, we have resumed showings of occupied properties, property reviews and non-emergency maintenance visits. At this time, our in-house staff entering tenant-occupied homes will be required to wear protective face coverings and maintain safe distances from tenants. We are aware that some tenants may be at a greater risk and will respect any special requests to ensure the safety of these tenants.
We continue to offer prospective tenants the opportunity to view our vacant properties via remote lockbox showings. Also, we have not set any restrictions on working in vacant properties so there should be no delay in preparing your property for a new tenant once the vacating tenants surrender possession.
NEW LEASES AND MOVE OUTS
Tenants moving out are able to do so by dropping off keys in the drop box located outside of our office. This will allow us to begin work preparing your property for re-rental as soon as possible. For new tenants, we are scheduling appointments for key pick up to ensure continued ability for tenants to move in and begin their leases.
If the need arises, we encourage you to contact your lender to inquire about mortgage deferment and relief options.
