Effective April 1, 2013, North Carolina law (G.S. §§44A-11.1, 44A-11.2, 160A-417, 153A-357, and 87-14) will require that an owner (or, as typical with permit applications, the contractor on their behalf) appoint a lien agent when they first contract for improvements to real property. A lien agent is a title insurer or agent also registered as a lien agent with the NC Department of Insurance.
