Tenant is unwilling to give written notice if they plan to renew or not at the end of a yearly lease

I have at lease agreement with tenant for the term of 1 year in the State of NC.  I have given written notices to the tenant that their lease will expire on July 31.  The written notice was given to tenant 30 - 45 days prior to the lease expiration date.  My lease does not have an automatic renew clause nor will the lease automatically goes into a month to month if Tenant stays beyond the lease term.  How can I verify if the state of NC has a law which would allow the tenant to rent month to month without a signed agreement and over ride my yearly lease agreement with the Tenant?

They cannot stay later than the date you set to expire, it sounds like you gave proper notice. They cannot go month to month when you strictly sent aa non-renewal notice. However if they do not leave you cannot just change locks you must evict them.
