Legal Question

Asked on: 7/28/13, 11:21 am

Hi I live in NC and was issued a notice to appear in court (got letter on my door on Fri the 26th and the court date is on Mon the 29th and the days in between I wasn't able to reach the court house because its the weekend) so my question is, if I go to court for an eviction hearing do I have ten days to pay the balance due and then we can maintain tenancy or are we evicted regardless of payment or not? Ive called the court and tried talking to the leasing office where they basically told me that my two options are to pay the balance before the court date or show up to the hearing and they'll say I have ten days to pay the rent. But that's where my question comes in because I was confused as to whether we would be evicted even if I pay the balance within ten days.

Thanks

Carlo
