What is NCAT?
NCAT, or the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, serves as a statutory body offering a platform for resolving an array of disputes, including building and construction issues. It’s a forum designed to make justice accessible and affordable for residents across New South Wales, including Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Broken Head, Suffolk Park, Mullumbimby, and Bangalow.
Operating under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT consists of various divisions, among which the Consumer and Commercial Division handles building disputes. It addresses matters linked to residential and commercial construction conflicts, encompassing issues like incomplete work, defects, payment disputes, variations, and contract breaches.
NCAT’s primary goal is swift, efficient, and cost-effective dispute resolution, steering away from prolonged court procedures. While mediation or conciliation are encouraged for dispute settlement, NCAT can enforce binding orders if resolution is not achieved. The tribunal offers user-friendly services, including procedural information, assistance with forms, and mediation or conciliation guidance.
Leveraging with our experienced NCAT lawyer, we can help navigate the legal intricacies, guide you through dispute resolution, and offer either legal representation or advice tailored to your specific NCAT building dispute in the Byron Bay region.
