This note will examine some of the other contractual remedies that the North Carolina courts could make available to tenants for breach of the implied warranty of habitability. The Miller case suggests that the courts would hold that some of these remedies are available under the Act but that others are not. This note will address the issues of why some of these remedies should or should not be available under Miller and the Act. Since the North Carolina courts seem to be willing to consider other remedies under the Act, lawyers who represent North Carolina tenants should familiarize themselves with these remedies and urge the North Carolina courts to adopt them.
