What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, serves as a crucial entity for resolving various disputes, including those within the realm of building and construction. Operating under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT encompasses multiple divisions, with the Consumer and Commercial Division being pivotal in addressing building disputes.
This division focuses on both residential and commercial building conflicts, such as issues with incomplete or defective work, payment disputes, variations, and contract breaches. NCAT derives its jurisdiction in building disputes from the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).
NCAT’s fundamental goal is to facilitate swift, efficient, and cost-effective dispute resolution, steering clear of protracted and costly court proceedings. It encourages parties to explore mediation or conciliation for resolutions. In cases where an agreement remains elusive, NCAT possesses the authority to issue binding orders to settle matters.
NCAT stands as an accessible and user-friendly tribunal, offering valuable services that guide parties through the dispute resolution process. These services include providing essential information, procedural guidance, and assistance in dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or conciliation.
