What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT), stands as a pivotal institution for resolving a diverse spectrum of disputes, including those in the realm of building and construction. Dedicated to providing accessible justice throughout New South Wales, NCAT operates within the framework of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, encompassing various divisions to address distinct matters.
Of notable relevance is the Consumer and Commercial Division, tasked with addressing building and construction disputes. This division handles cases involving both residential and commercial disputes, addressing issues such as incomplete or faulty work, contractual breaches, variations, and monetary claims. Anchored in the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), NCAT’s jurisdiction within building disputes is established.
NCAT’s core objective is swift, efficient, and economical dispute resolution. Encouraging mediation and conciliation for amicable settlements, NCAT wields the authority to render binding decisions when resolutions prove elusive.
Renowned for its accessibility and user-friendly approach, NCAT offers an array of resources to aid parties in traversing the dispute resolution process.
