What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) is a pivotal statutory body offering a platform for resolving diverse disputes, including building and construction conflicts. It’s a forum designed to extend affordable and accessible justice across New South Wales.
NCAT, governed by the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, comprises divisions such as the Consumer and Commercial Division, Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division, and Occupational Division.
The Consumer and Commercial Division, particularly vital for building disputes, addresses issues within both residential and commercial contexts. From incomplete or defective work to breaches of contract, NCAT’s jurisdiction, originating from the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), covers a wide scope.
NCAT thrives on efficiency and affordability. While mediation or conciliation is encouraged for dispute resolution, binding orders can be issued if consensus is unattainable. The tribunal’s user-friendly nature is complemented by services like procedural guidance, form assistance, and dispute resolution aid.
With our lawyer’s experience as an NCAT solicitor, we can navigate the intricacies of NCAT for you. Whether you seek representation or advice, we are here to guide your building dispute journey to resolution.
