What is Security of Payment?

Understanding the Security of Payment Act NSW

The Security of Payment Act, specifically the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), empowers claimants with the right to demand, receive, and recover payments from liable parties. This law is essential for contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors as it enables them to claim progress payments for their work, goods, or services provided. The Act establishes a structured process to address issues of late or non-payment, ensuring timely compensation. It’s crucial to acknowledge that the Act sets strict and concise time frames that all parties involved must adhere to for a smoother resolution process.
