The exact authority needed is uncertain but seems roughly to be Warlord or higher, with use increasing with formality and the relative rank of the addressee. Being noble isn't a prerequisite for being addresses as either "Lord" or "Lady".

[edit] The difference between an honorific and a title

A honorific is used to preface a person's name as a sign of respect. A title is something a person posses that is not part of their name. People of different rank or title can share the same honorific. If Steward is a Baron he would be addressed as "Lord Steward". Something can be both a title and an honorific (i.e. "Prince") but it does not have to be the case.
