What is Security of Payment?
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) is the pivotal legal framework governing the entitlements of parties within the construction sector. This legislation empowers claimants, which include contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors, with the right to claim and secure payment for work executed or goods and services provided. Beyond establishing rights, the Act also outlines a structured process to be adhered to, especially when confronted with payment delays or discrepancies. It’s crucial to recognise that this Act enforces stringent and concise timelines, mandating timely compliance from all parties involved.
Navigating the intricate landscape of construction law, particularly in payments, can be daunting. At Contracts Specialist, we’re here to guide you through every step, providing tailored solutions for residents at Muswellbrook and its surrounding regions like Denman, Muscle Creek, McCullys Gap, Castle Rock, and Sandy Hollow.
