What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act: Ensuring Fair Compensation
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) is a crucial legal framework that empowers claimants to demand, receive, and recover rightful payments from those liable. This Act is a boon for contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors, granting them the ability to claim progress payments for their work, supplies, or services. In the event of delayed or absent payment, the Act offers a structured process for claimants to follow. It’s worth noting that the Act enforces strict and concise time frames, ensuring compliance from all parties involved. This legal safeguard ensures equitable compensation while maintaining clear timelines.
