What is Security of Payment?

Under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors have the right to demand and recover payment for their work or supplied goods and services. This Act outlines a process to address late or non-payment situations, but it’s essential to adhere to the strict and short time frames specified within the legislation.
