What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act, specifically the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), is a crucial legislation that empowers claimants in the construction industry to demand, receive, and recover payment from parties liable to make payments. This Act is beneficial for contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors as it enables them to claim progress payments for their completed works or supplied goods and services. In cases of late or non-payment, the Act offers a structured process that claimants can follow. However, it is essential to adhere to the Act’s strict and time-sensitive guidelines that each party must comply with.
