What is Security of Payment?
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) empowers claimants, including contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors, to demand, receive, and recover rightful payments from liable parties. This legislation facilitates the progress payment process for services rendered, goods supplied, or works performed. In cases of delayed or non-payment, the Act outlines a systematic procedure for claimants to follow. It’s vital to note that the Act imposes strict time frames for compliance by all parties involved, ensuring a fair and efficient resolution process.
