What is NCAT?

NCAT, known formally as the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, is a pivotal statutory institution in New South Wales, facilitating the resolution of a vast spectrum of disputes, including those tied to building and construction. Established under the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, NCAT comprises multiple divisions, with the Consumer and Commercial Division taking the lead in addressing building and construction disagreements. This division explicitly oversees matters such as incomplete projects, defects, variations, breaches of contract, and non-payment issues, deriving its jurisdictional prowess from the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW).

Emphasising swift, economical, and efficient resolution, NCAT promotes mediation or conciliation as the primary avenue for settling disputes. However, if consensus remains elusive, the tribunal possesses the authority to implement binding orders. Its design ensures accessibility and user-friendliness, offering comprehensive guidance on procedures, forms, and resolution services. Our expertise at NCAT equips us to provide essential legal advice, representation, and unwavering support throughout the NCAT process for homeowners at Wagga Wagga and its surrounding regions.
