What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) is a pivotal entity for resolving a spectrum of conflicts, particularly building and construction disputes. As a statutory authority, NCAT is committed to delivering accessible and budget-friendly justice to individuals across New South Wales.
Under the framework of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT is compartmentalised into diverse divisions, encompassing the Consumer and Commercial Division, the Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division, and the Occupational Division.
Central to our focus, the Consumer and Commercial Division addresses building and construction disputes. It presides over hearings concerning both residential and commercial building conflicts, involving matters such as incomplete work, defects, payment discrepancies, variations, and contractual breaches. NCAT’s jurisdiction emanates from the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).
Efficiency is NCAT’s hallmark. It strives to expeditiously, economically, and comprehensively resolve disputes, circumventing prolonged and costly court proceedings. While mediation or conciliation is encouraged for amicable settlements, NCAT holds authority to render binding decisions when reconciliation proves elusive.
NCAT’s accessibility is underscored by its user-friendly approach. A gamut of services assists parties in manoeuvring the resolution process, including procedural insights, form guidance, and dispute resolution support through mediation or conciliation.
