Executive Order 171: What You Need to Know

On October 28, Governor Cooper announced Executive Order 171 “Assisting North Carolinians At Risk of Eviction.” This Order requires landlords to provide tenants with a copy of the CDC Declaration form and submit a signed affidavit confirming that the form was provided to the tenant when filing for eviction.

NC REALTORS® adopted Form 465: Affidavit Showing Delivery of Blank CDC Declaration Form to Tenant to assist members in compliance with this Order. Visit the NC REALTORS® Forms Library to download this new form (login required). A blank CDC Declaration Form can be downloaded here.

We also hosted a webinar last week to discuss the Order and its impact on your business. Watch the replay.

Legal Q&A | Who is authorized to sign a contract on behalf of an LLC?

QUESTION: If a limited liability company (an “LLC”) is selling or buying property, does the contract have to be signed by all of its members? Alternatively, is it sufficient for just one member to sign?
