What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act in New South Wales, also known as the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), grants claimants the right and entitlement to demand, receive, and recover payment from the party liable to make it.
This crucial legislation benefits contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors, enabling them to claim progress payments for the completed works, goods, or services supplied. In case of delayed or non-payment, the Act outlines a structured process for claimants.
Notably, the Act imposes strict and short time frames that all parties involved must adhere to, ensuring a fair and efficient resolution process.
