What is NCAT?
The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, or NCAT, serves as a pivotal statutory body for diverse dispute resolutions, including building and construction conflicts. With a mission to render accessible and cost-effective justice across New South Wales, NCAT operates under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013. Its divisions encompass the Consumer and Commercial Division, Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division, and Occupational Division.
Of these, the Consumer and Commercial Division holds sway over building and construction disputes. These encompass matters related to residential and commercial building conflicts, such as incomplete work, defects, payment disputes, and contractual breaches. Empowered by the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), NCAT aspires to expedite resolutions without protracted court processes. It advocates for mediation or conciliation first, resorting to binding orders when necessary. Navigating the tribunal is user-friendly and reinforced by its services, including procedural guidance, form assistance, and dispute resolution facilitation.
