I can tell you from experience that NHC does NOTHING about complaints like this. I lodged a complaint with them because my next door neighbors had approx. 25-30 people living in and AROUND their house. They were sleeping in the garage, in tents and in vans out back.
They had yardsales almost every weekend. The only response that I could get out of the county was for them to send a letter to the property owner letting them know that there were restrictions on the number and frequency of yardsales.
The county REFUSED to do anything about the living conditions there because there is no minimum housing code in the county. I finally tried to go the route of the building department because unless there is heat in the garage, they are not allowed to live in there. I finally had to contact the NC Department of Insurance that regulates and enforces the building code to get them to FORCE NHC to do SOMETHING.
It was a fiasco and NHC was of NO value. They threw up roadbloacks at every turn.
