What is Security of Payment?
The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), which established the Security of Payment Act, gives claimants the authority to demand and recover payment from those who are responsible for making it. This legislation benefits contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors, enabling them to claim progress payments for their work and supplied goods and services. In case of late or non-payment, the Act outlines a structured process for claimants to follow. It is essential to adhere to the Act’s stringent and time-sensitive guidelines to ensure a smooth and efficient resolution of payment disputes.
