My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: North Carolina
We just moved into an apt about 1 1/2 weeks ago. There are only 4 apt in the unit, 2 up and 2 down. We were lord by the lady working in the office that in addition to the parking in front of the building that there was additional parking in the back. She never asked how many vehicles we have. There is no mention of parking whatsoever in the lease. While we were moving in, 3 days in a row a visitor of the upstairs apt was parked in front of our door. The 3rd day my fiancee asked the fellow sitting in the car to please move to a different spot as we were trying to move stuff in to the apt. The next day there was a letter from the landlord's office taped to the door stating that 1st floor tenants were only allowed 2 parking spots and any additional vehicles would be required to park arcoss the street as well as any guests visiting. My fiancee walked to the office to inquire and was told by the secretary that it was a standard practice every Jan to remind tenants of parking rules. Now the letter was addressed specifically to us with the wording of 1st floor tenants. She was also told that the back parking lot was only for upstairs tennants which contridicts what she told us before was signed the lease. The street they are talking about us crossing it busy and hard to cross. Can they impose these rules on us now when it condridicts the verbal instructions they gave before we moved in and with there not being anything in the lease about parking. Also the upstairs tennants continue to have visitors park downstairs daily. Isn't this discriminatory? Thanks.
