North Carolina has very particular rules and requirements about residential and commercial construction. Contractors, designers, engineers, architects, suppliers and owners should take the time to understand what the law dictates before embarking on any form of construction project.
Many of the problems arising in construction law in North Carolina are related to liens, the lien process and issues that are produced by construction liens. In 2013, North Carolina created a new set of construction lien laws that affected owners, contractors, subcontractors and anyone working on projects in which construction liens were involved. The law imposes some particular requirements that are required to be followed to properly protect lien rights. There are rules that must be adhered to and failing to meet legal requirements may jeopardize these valuable lien rights.
