I'm sorry to hear you've been going unpaid. I think there may be a little confusion as to what's required re: a North Carolina lien agent. This article should help provide some background info: What is a Lien Agent? But anyway - in North Carolina, a lien agent is actually appointed by the property owner. Claimants on North Carolina projects where a lien agent is present must send a "Notice to Lien Agent" in order to preserve the right to lien. zlien discusses the Notice to Lien Agent in depth in the following resources: The Lien Agent – The Most Dramatic Change to North Carolina Lien Law and North Carolina Lien & Notice FAQs. Finally, here are some other resources that can help to compel payment: What is a Notice of Intent to Lien? and How to File a North Carolina Mechanics Lien. Finally, zlien is not a North Carolina mechanics lien agent, but we're happy to help provide information that can make the NC lien process less intimidating! Feel free to come back to the Construction Legal Center with further questions.
