North Carolina General Statutes § 44-51.1 Lien on real property of recipient of ambulance service paid for or provided by county or municipality

There is hereby created a general lien upon the real property of any person who has been furnished ambulance service by a county or municipal agency or at the expense of county or municipal government. The lien created by this section shall continue from the date of filing until satisfied, except that no action to enforce it may be brought more than 10 years after the date on which ambulance service was furnished nor more than three years after the date of recipient's death. Failure to bring action within such times shall be  a complete bar against any recovery and shall extinguish the lien. (1969, c. 684.)
