What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act in New South Wales (NSW) is a crucial law that grants claimants the right to demand, receive, and recover payments from those liable to make them. This Act plays a significant role in assisting contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors to claim progress payments for the services rendered and goods supplied. In cases of delayed or non-payment, the Act offers a structured process for claimants to follow. However, it is essential to be aware of the Act’s strict and concise time frames that both parties must adhere to diligently. Complying with these timelines is essential for a smooth resolution of payment disputes.
