As of January 1, 2017, the border between North Carolina and South Carolina has been
redrawn with modern technology to confirm the boundary lines established over 200
years ago. The boundary has not changed, but over time some of the markers from the
original survey have been destroyed or lost. The new state line has caused some
properties that were originally in North Carolina, to now be in South Carolina and vice
versa. This change not only affects the personal lives of the residents, but also has
some very important implications and changes for mortgage lenders and servicers.
Below are the applicable excerpts of the new laws from each state as it relates to
mortgages and deeds of trust.
