Also amends GS 160A-417 (cities and towns) and GS 153A-357(e) (counties) to extend the exemption to requiring the designation of a lien agentto the permit requirements for the construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, movement to another site, removal, or demolition of any building or structure.
Rewrites subsection (h) of GS 44A-11.2, defining custom contractor to mean a contractor duly licensed as a general contractor under Article 1 of GS Chapter 87, who has contracted with an owner who is not an affiliate, relative, or insider of the contractor to build a single-family residence on the owner's property to be occupied by the owner as a residence. Specifies that the notice requirement under subsections (m) and (n) of GS 44A-11.2 will be considered to have been met on the date that the lien agent receives notice of its designation as lien agent from the custom contractor, providing that certain specified conditions are met.
