Consumer Protection Investigation

Our firm is currently investigating property management practices related to the assessment and collection of eviction-related fees from tenants following the filing of a complaint for summary ejectment.

It is our understanding that multiple properties regularly charge and collect filing fees, service fees, and attorneys’ fees after filing an eviction complaint against their tenants. This is in addition to late fees. This could add up to be hundreds of dollars, simply for being a couple of days late with rent!

The properties that we are currently investigating include:

Each of these management groups own properties across North Carolina, from big cities to smaller communities.

Unfortunately, on June 25, 2018, the law changed to make it far easier for landlords to recover out-of-pocket legal expenses from tenants during eviction cases. Before this new legislation passed, landlords could not recover these eviction-related fees.

If you had an eviction filed on you by one of the above properties or any other properties before July 25th, 2018, Maginnis Law’s consumer protection attorneys would like to speak with you confidentially. You may be entitled to a complete refund of all amounts of illegal eviction-related fees, plus a statutory penalty ranging from $500 to $4,000 per violation, in addition to your attorneys’ fees.

Our firm has recovered MILLIONS of dollars on behalf of tenants for the illegal assessment of eviction-related fees.
