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. This vital legislation is designed to benefit contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors by allowing them to claim progress payments for their rendered services or supplied goods. With a structured process, the Act addresses situations of delayed or missing payments. It’s important to be aware that the Act enforces strict and concise time frames that all involved parties must adhere to. This ensures a streamlined resolution process for payment disputes in the construction sector.
