What is Security of Payment?
Understanding the Security of Payment Act
The Security of Payment Act, 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 rightful payments for the work they have performed or goods and services supplied.
This vital legislation allws claimants to claim progress payments promptly and efficiently. In cases of late or non-payment, the Act provides a clear process for claimants to follow to seek their dues. It is crucial to note that the Act imposes strict and short time frames that all parties must adhere to. Familiarity with this legislation is essential to navigate payment disputes effectively and ensure timely and fair compensation.
