What is Security of Payment?
Understanding the Security of Payment Act
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) (Act) grants contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors the right to demand and recover payments from those responsible for payment. This vital legislation allows claimants to seek progress payments for completed work, supplied goods, or services rendered. In cases of late or non-payment, the Act provides a structured process for resolution. It’s crucial to recognize that the Act enforces strict and concise time frames that all involved parties must adhere to, ensuring timely and fair compensation within the construction realm.
