What is NCAT?
NCAT, short for the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, serves as a vital platform for resolving a diverse range of disputes, including those in the realm of building and construction. This statutory body is purpose-built to deliver accessible and affordable justice throughout New South Wales.
Operating under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT comprises distinct divisions, each catering to specific areas. The Consumer and Commercial Division, of particular relevance here, handles building and construction disputes. This division addresses both residential and commercial conflicts, encompassing issues like incomplete work, defects, payment disputes, and contractual breaches.
NCAT stands as an efficient alternative to lengthy court proceedings. It promotes dispute resolution via mediation or conciliation. If resolutions remain elusive, NCAT wields the power to issue binding orders to settle matters.
With its user-friendly approach, NCAT offers a suite of services to aid parties navigating the dispute resolution journey. This includes procedural guidance, essential form assistance, and mediation or conciliation support.
