What is NCAT?

The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, more commonly known as NCAT, is a statutory authority established to facilitate the resolution of a diverse array of disputes, notably those within the building and construction realm. Crafted to offer New South Wales residents an affordable and straightforward path to justice, NCAT operates under the aegis of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013.

The Consumer and Commercial Division of NCAT has several divisions, including the Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division and the Occupational Division, focusing primarily on building and construction disputes. This division takes on cases involving residential and commercial building conflicts, ranging from disputes over faulty work, unpaid dues, variations, and contractual breaches, with its authority rooted in the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).

Embodying efficiency, NCAT streamlines the resolution process, advocating for mediation or conciliation. However, if no middle ground is reached, it possesses the authority to issue binding orders. Known for its accessibility, NCAT aids parties through the intricacies of dispute resolution, offering information, procedural guidance, and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like mediation.
