North Carolina State FAQs

Is North Carolina a judicial or non-judicial state?

Non-Judicial

In a non-judicial foreclosure state, the lender does not need to go through the court system in order to foreclose on a property. This process can be quicker and less expensive for the lender compared to a judicial foreclosure.

As a real estate investor, it is important to understand the differences between judicial and non-judicial states because it can affect the amount of time and money it takes to foreclose on a property. It can also impact the availability of properties that are being foreclosed on and the process of purchasing those properties.

What is the process of closing on a property in North Carolina?

Attorneys or lenders may handle closings, and corporate agents issue title insurance. Conveyance is by warranty deed. Deeds of trust with private power of sale are the customary security instruments. Foreclosures are non-judicial, with a 10-day redemption period following the sale. The entire process takes between 45 and 60 days. North Carolinians use ALTA policies, but these require an attorneys opinion before they’re issued. Buyers and sellers negotiate the closing costs, except that buyers pay the recording costs, and sellers pay the document preparation and transfer tax costs. Property taxes fall due annually on the last day of the year.

Such employees may not negotiate security deposits, rental payments or leases.
