Stop Order
A stop order is a legally binding, formal, and written notification to a contractor, subcontractor, or other person authorized to perform construction on a building to immediately discontinue any and all work on a project. A stop order may be issued by the architect or owner for several reasons, including faulty construction, termination of contract, lack of funds, etc. A stop order may also be issued by the local government, or other authority; the stop order is then commonly called a Stop Construction Order, and is usually issued because of improper permits, violations to regulations such as set-backs or safety laws, or some other such aspect of the construction the government has authority to control. Violation of stop orders by contractors, subcontractors, or owners may result in heavy civil or criminal suits.
