Can homeowners in Wilmington legally rent out garage apartments?

Asked by lknovell, Wilmington, NC Fri Apr 5, 2013

If my single-family home is in a residential zone (R-10 I think), can I obtain a permit to rent a detached apartment if it were, say, up to code? P.S. It would need to be legal and on the books.
