♦ We are well aware that Salisbury has it’s share of unscrupulous landlords/slumlords who will take advantage of renters most notably through the failure of not returning deposits, through neglecting to abate black mold, asbestos, and other toxic conditions, through not keeping rental agreements to upkeep properties, plumbing, painting, and electrical wiring.  Sometimes renters act out in anger and frustration, trashing their rental apartments or homes, smashing windows, throwing a goodbye party where walls are battered, toilets deliberately stopped up to create flooding and water damage on the floors below, smashing doors off the hinges, and removing electrical wiring and boxes, arson, and other vengeful acts. This can get the irate renter in trouble with law enforcement. Instead of acting out, renters in Salisbury and North Carolina have legal recourse.  Posted below this article is the latest N.C. Renter’s Rights PDF by the N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein and other valuable documents on Renter’s Rights.

According to Salisbury Police sources Bowman Properties, on JM Keys Drive in Charlotte was the victim of “vandalism” by an occupant at 915 S. Jackson Street Friday who allegedly went off and smashed 11 windows (costing $2,000) and a mailbox costing $50 with a blunt object (hammer, club, or baseball bat).  We don’t know the specific motivations of why this house was vandalized or the name of vandal.  On the incident report it stated 915 S. Jackson Street was the “home of the offender”.
