Law & Government

The North Carolina Room is the place for finding out information about local and state laws. Located within the Department are the North Carolina General Statutes, the Forsyth County Code and the Winston-Salem City Codes. You can use these works to find information about landlord/lease laws, divorce, and much more.

Also located in the N.C. Room are the Building Codes. Here you can find out what is legal and illegal when building or remodeling your home. It’s a great source to check before you tear down that wall or if you want to see if your contractor is following the codes.
