About Our Expert Panel:
The panel will include Buncombe County Magistrate Joseph Knight. Mr. Knight is the primary civil small claims magistrate in Buncombe County. As such, Mr. Knight hears thousands of landlord-tenant cases each year and knows the common mistakes that both landlords and tenants make in filing their paperwork and representing themselves in small claims court. Mr. Knight will give his view from the bench of the common misperceptions litigants have and common missteps litigants make in breach of lease cases and summary ejectment matters.

Joining Mr. Knight on the panel will be Ben Many of Pisgah Legal Services. Mr. Many is an attorney and advocate in Pisgah Legal’s Housing Rights Section. Mr. Many will speak on the mistakes that many landlords make in failing to keep their properties habitable and in good condition, and on the mistakes he regularly sees landlords make when going to court. He will address the ideal that Pisgah Legal is there to prevent landlord abuses and protect the rights of unknowing and unsuspecting tenants, and not just to make lives difficult for well-educated and responsible landlords.

Rounding out the panel will be attorney Kenneth Hunt of the Roberts and Stevens Law Firm in Asheville. A lawyer representing the Asheville Housing Authority, Mr. Hunt will be presenting the landlord’s perspective of the landlord-tenant relationship. From making sure the initial demand letter is right to filling out the proper small claims form, Mr. Hunt will walk members through the steps from breach to successful eviction, including what to do with all that stuff the tenant leaves behind. Mr. Hunt regularly litigates on behalf of landlords against tenants often represented by Pisgah Legal Services.
