What is Security of Payment?
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) is a crucial legislation that empowers claimants to demand, receive, and recover rightful payments from parties obligated to pay. This legislation greatly benefits contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors involved in construction projects. It allows them to assert their entitlement to progress payments for services rendered, goods supplied, or work completed. The Act provides a structured process for claimants to follow when faced with delayed or non-payment issues. It’s worth noting that the Act enforces strict and concise timelines that all parties must adhere to, adding an element of efficiency to the resolution process.
