What is NCAT?
NCAT, the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, serves as a pivotal institution for resolving a broad spectrum of disputes, including crucial building and construction conflicts. Established to extend accessible and affordable justice throughout New South Wales, NCAT operates under the framework of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, encompassing divisions designed to address various legal matters.
Central to building and construction concerns is the Consumer and Commercial Division, tasked with overseeing disputes related to both residential and commercial building domains. It effectively addresses issues ranging from incomplete or substandard work to financial discrepancies, contractual breaches, and variations. The jurisdiction of NCAT’s building dispute resolution is rooted in the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).
NCAT’s mission revolves around prompt, efficient, and economical dispute resolution, circumventing the need for extensive and costly court procedures. It advocates for settlement through mediation or conciliation. However, when agreement proves elusive, NCAT holds the authority to enforce binding orders, finalising the dispute.
With a strong commitment to accessibility, NCAT offers an array of services aimed at assisting parties as they navigate the complexities of the resolution process. From procedural guidance and requisite form information to mediation and conciliation support, the tribunal facilitates every step.
