Recently our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division was asked by a national lighting supplier to record a NORTH CAROLINA Notice to Lien Agent for a new Charlotte, NC shopping center. To do this, you must register and logon at Recently TRADITION LIEN SERVICE was asked by a national lighting supplier to record a NORTH CAROLINA Notice to Lien Agent for a new Charlotte, NC shopping center. To do this, you must register and logon at www.LiensNC.com.

First, the address when typed into the “Search” option produced 26,972 results.liensncsearchaddress

OK, let’s try to get a little closer to the desired correct results by typing in the Property Owner, ASHTON PROPERTIES into the “Advanced Search”. This time there were 5,619 results. liensncsearchowner

Now it is time to contact the General Contractor on behalf of my customer to ask for the Entry Number. They told me is was 4301148. Upon entering 430148 I now got 2 results, with one of them being the correct result. The other result coincidentally was for the number matching someone else’s phone number.liensncsearchentry

Bottom line is that after three (3) plus years the State of NORTH CAROLINA has created a website that lacks basic critical search capabilities.
