What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act, also known as the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), empowers claimants – including contractors, suppliers, and subcontractors – to demand, receive, and recover rightful payments from those liable. This Act offers a recourse for securing progress payments for work done or services provided. It establishes a clear process to address delayed or withheld payments, ensuring fairness. Keep in mind that the Act mandates strict timeframes for compliance by all parties involved.
