What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act in New South Wales, specifically the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), grants contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors the right to demand, receive, and recover payment from parties liable for the works carried out or goods and services supplied. This act allows claimants to claim progress payments and provides a clear process to follow in cases of late or non-payment. It’s crucial to acknowledge that the Act imposes strict and concise time frames that all parties involved must adhere to when engaging in the payment process.
