I know in Florida a job must be at least $2,500.00 in order to lien the property. We just started supplying materials for several projects in North Carolina and need to know what this requirement is.

That's a good question. First, regarding Florida lien limitations - under § 713.02(5), "Any improvement for which the direct contract price is $2,500 or less shall be exempt from all other provisions of this part except the provisions of s. 713.05." Thus, § 713.05 - which establishes lien rights for parties who have contracted directly with the property owner - is not affected by a contract price at or under $2,500. Anyway, looking to North Carolina,, nothing in the North Carolina lien statute appears to affect projects under a specified threshold amount.
