In North Carolina, beginning January 1, 2013, all claims of lien on real property must be served on the owner, and a claim of lien on real property asserted by a subcontractor or supplier by subrogation must be served upon the contractor as well as the owner. Prior law allowed a North Carolina claim of lien to be filed but not served. Beginning in January, a claim of lien on real property will not be perfected until it is both filed and served. Therefore, service and filing of the claim of a lien on real property must occur no later than 120 days from the last furnishing of labor or materials to the project by any person claiming the lien.
