Effective April 1, 2013

Welcome to LiensNC,
the North Carolina Online Lien Agent System

Effective for construction projects beginning on or after April 1, 2013, North Carolina law requires appointment of a lien agent. Contractors and subcontractors can then give notice they are working on the project. Appointments are not required for (1) improvements under $30,000 or (2) to the owner's existing residence or (3) for public building projects.
Overview of Process and History

LiensNC is an on-line application created specifically to help users file these appointments and notices as well as search for filings - quickly and easily. By properly using the online system, you will be notifying the lien agent of your involvement in the project. It's that easy!

To get started, we encourage you to refer to the Guide area of this site to find additional information for your specific role in the construction project. Once you are familiar with the system, First Time Users will need to create a user account to access LiensNC. Returning users can login with their existing account credentials.

NOTICE: The LiensNC office will be closed on Memorial Day.
