The North Carolina eviction process, known legally as a 'Summary Ejectment', is the procedure of a landlord forcibly moving a tenant off the premises when they have failed to respond to a notice to quit. The landlord, before starting a filing with the court, must either submit to the tenant the immediate, seven (7), or ten (10) day notice to quit. Afterwards the landlord may continue with a filing with the Complaint in the County Court Clerk's Office. The Instructions should be followed by the landlord to complete the undertaking and the lessee, if served, may be able to represent themselves by viewing Their Tenant Rights.
