What is NCAT?
NCAT, the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, stands as a pivotal institution for resolving a diverse array of disputes, with a spotlight on building and construction matters. Designed as a beacon of accessible justice, NCAT caters to people throughout New South Wales.
Operating under the aegis of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT boasts distinct divisions, including the Consumer and Commercial Division, the Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division, and the Occupational Division.
Of these divisions, the Consumer and Commercial Division takes the reins in addressing building and construction disputes. Its purview spans both residential and commercial building contentions, encompassing issues like incomplete work, defects, monetary disputes, contract breaches, and more. This mandate is rooted in the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).
NCAT functions with an ethos of rapid, efficient, and cost-effective dispute resolution, veering away from protracted court processes. While mediation and conciliation are its preferred avenues for conflict resolution, NCAT wields the authority to issue binding orders when settlements prove elusive.
Accessible and user-friendly, NCAT extends an array of services to assist parties in traversing the labyrinth of dispute resolution. It offers valuable insights, procedural guidance, and requisite form assistance. As a seasoned NCAT solicitor, I’m adept at unravelling the intricacies of legal procedures and requirements. Be it legal advice or representation, count on me to furnish the support and expertise needed to navigate and resolve your building dispute within NCAT.
