The Perils of Orphaned Roads

Across North Carolina, some homeowners find that the street their house is on doesn't have a clear owner and maintenance isn't done by the city, state, or county. In many cases, banks won't lend a mortgage to someone who wants to purchase a home on one of these roads, which means the owners can't sell. These homeowners also lose basic services like trash collection, school buses, and emergency medical service.


Do you know a friend or loved one with a story like this, or have one of your own?

Leave us your story about how an orphaned road has impacted you and we'll reach out about the legislation we are working to support on your behalf.

The NC Homeowners Alliance represents the interests of property owners in the General Assembly and raises awareness of issues and legislation that affect consumers' most important investment: their home.

The Alliance stands for common-sense measures that will improve the everyday life of all North Carolinians. In order to boost the North Carolina economy and defend the rights of its citizens, the General Assembly should support legislation that will protect the rights of property owners, encourage homeownership, and keep insurance rates fair and affordable.
