What is Security of Payment?
Understanding the Security of Payment Act NSW
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) empowers claimants with the right to demand, receive, and recover payments owed to them from parties responsible for payment. This crucial legislation benefits contractors, suppliers, developers, and subcontractors by enabling them to claim progress payments for completed work, goods, or services provided. The Act establishes a structured process for claimants to follow in cases of delayed or missing payments. It’s essential to highlight that the Act imposes precise and time-sensitive requirements on all parties involved, emphasising the importance of adhering to strict timelines to ensure fair compensation.
