North Carolina Preliminary Notice -- Notice to Lien Agent

North Carolina, like most states, requires a form of preliminary notice to be sent to property owners or other contractors in the chain as an essential step to claiming a mechanic's lien. In North Carolina, the notice takes the form of a "Notice to Lien Agent." A lien agent (usually a title company) must be designated by statute for all non-owner occupied projects exceeding a value of $30,000. N.C.G.S. 44A-11.1. The Notice serves the purpose of providing Lien Agent with notice that the potential lien claimant is or will be providing labor, services or materials to the project property that could be the subject of a later lien claim.

The Notice to Lien Agent must include: 1) the potential lien claimant's name, address, telephone number, fax number (if available), and email address (if available); 2) the name of the party with whom the potential lien claimant contracted; 3) a description of the real property sufficient to identify it; and 4) a statement giving notice of the potential lien claimant's right to subsequently pursue a claim of lien for the improvements to the property. N.C.G.S. 44A-11.2(i).

The Notice to Lien Agent must be filed within 15 days of the potential lien claimant's first furnishing to the project property. N.C.G.S. 44A-11.2(l)(1). Serve the Notice to Lien Agent on the identified lien agent using any of the acceptable means of service in the State, although certified U.S. mail is usually the most convenient option.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

I am a litigator based in Lee County that rarely needs to record deeds or mortgages. However, at times, the settlement or resolution of a dispute results in the conveyance of real property. I ended up in a situation where a deed to real property in Bradford County needed to be recorded on behalf of a client. My usual e-recording vendor does not include that County. Registering with Bradford County's regular e-recording vendor would have required an expensive and unnecessary annual fee.

Deeds.com was easy to use, inexpensive and fast. I highly encourage its use, especially for lawyers that occasionally need to record instruments but do not do so regularly.

Thank you so much for providing simple but very significant documents one can basically do PRO SE, without any additional huge counsel expenses and yet be legitimate enough to officially file them as state law allows and extends to basic documents processing and filings. Thank you so much for the professional documents provided as they do the proper job. MP
