A friend thought his lease ended August 1st, but he just got a call from his landlord saying that it ended two days ago. They don't have anyone slated to move in for two weeks, but say that they need that time to have the apartment professionally cleaned. What are the best steps for him to take? What rights does he have legally? We are in North Carolina.

Also, they're going to apparently charge him money for every day his key isn't returned. He's considered just making a copy and then returning it, while continuing to occupy the unit - is this a horrible idea?
