The cost for filing a mechanics lien can depend on a number of different factors, including on whether the claimant will file the lien or will have the lien filed by someone else - such as a lien filing service (Levelset offers such a service here, but there are several others available online as well). Further, even when a claimant decides to file a lien on their own, costs can vary by county and will also vary depending on whether the lien is filed in person or online. For the cost of filing a lien in the county where you intend to file, reaching out to the county recorder of that county or searching their website will usually provide some clarity. Often, a schedule of fees will be available online at their website. For a free, downloadable mechanics lien form, here are some North Carolina forms that Levelset offers: Mechanics Lien Upon Funds, General Contractor Claim of Lien on Real Property, and Subcontractors Claim of Lien on Real Property.
