What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act, also known as the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), grants contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors the right to demand, receive, and recover payments for the work they have performed or goods and services supplied. This crucial law enables claimants to seek progress payments and ensures they have a recourse in case of late or non-payment. It is essential to be aware that the Act imposes strict and short time frames that all parties involved must adhere to. For contractors at North Sydney and its surrounding suburbs, the Act offers vital protections to secure their rightful payments promptly.
