Stop Payment Notice

Stop Payment Notice Processing

A subcontractor seeking payment for materials and labor provided to a non-paying contractor typically initiates a stop payment notice. Stop Payment Notice processing will require the following:
  1. Subcontractor ("claimant") serves LAUSD with a stop payment notice (Civil Code § 8044)
  2. Original document should contain:
    • Name of contractor to whom labor and materials were provided.
    • Value of labor and materials provided.
    • Total value of labor and materials agreed to be furnished in contract.
    • Value of unpaid labor and materials furnished.
    • Claimant's name and address.
    • Project identification (either by contract or project number, or by school name and description of project).
  3. Original signatures
  4. Verification - penalty of perjury page or notarized letter authenticating statements. (Civil Code § 9352)
A properly executed stop payment notice will require LAUSD to withhold payment (the specified claim amount plus 25% for possible cost of litigation) from the general contractor (Civil Code §§ 9350-9510). Facilities Contracts (FC) will issue a Notice of Withhold against the specific project's contract.

Upon payment or settlement of the withheld amount, claimant should send a Release of Stop Payment Notice to Facilities Contracts (FC) and FC will issue a Release of Withhold.
