Section 18

Amends GS 24-1 to provide that the legal rate of interest is 8% per annum for such time as interest may accrue, and no more, except as otherwise provided in GS 136-113, which allows for interest as part of just compensation in condemnation cases by the DOT (previously, provided no exception).

Amends GS 136-113, concerning interest as part of just compensation in condemnation cases by the DOT, to eliminate the statutory reference to GS 24-1 relating to the addition of interest at the legal rate to the amount awarded as damages by the commissioners or a jury or judge. Instead, provides that for purposes of the statute, the term legal rate means the prime lending rate, as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System on the first business day of the calendar month immediately preceding the date of taking.
