What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) is a vital statutory body providing a platform for resolving a diverse array of disputes, notably building and construction conflicts. Operating under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT offers accessible and affordable justice to individuals throughout New South Wales.
Divided into distinct sections, including the Consumer and Commercial Division, Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division, and Occupational Division, NCAT’s pivotal role lies in the Consumer and Commercial Division. This division adeptly handles building and construction disputes, encompassing residential and commercial concerns such as incomplete work, defects, non-payment, variations, and contractual breaches. Its jurisdiction stems from the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).
NCAT endeavours to expedite resolutions effectively and economically, bypassing cumbersome court procedures. It promotes amicable solutions via mediation or conciliation, while also having the authority to issue binding orders when resolution efforts falter.
Being user-friendly and accessible, NCAT extends a suite of services aiding parties in manoeuvring through the dispute resolution process. This support includes procedural guidance, form assistance, and mediation or conciliation options.
