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 Oregon TODD transfer on death deed template worked great and was easy to use. They had instructions and a guide that had good pointers to filling everything out. It took about 2 weeks to mail in my filled TODD and receive it back from the county with their stamp. Would definitely use this service for other documents
