What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act in NSW, also known as the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999, grants contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors the right to demand, receive, and recover payments for work done or goods and services supplied. This vital legislation ensures progress payments are promptly claimed and protects against late or non-payment. The Act establishes a specific process that claimants can follow to resolve payment disputes. It is essential to understand that the Act imposes strict and tight timeframes on all parties involved, emphasising the importance of complying with these regulations to maintain a fair and efficient payment system in the construction industry.
