What is Security of Payment?
In New South Wales, the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) (Act) ensures your rightful entitlement to demand, retrieve, and recover payments from liable parties. Designed to fortify contractors, suppliers, developers, and subcontractors, the Act empowers them to claim progress payments for rendered services, executed works, and supplied goods. This crucial legislation establishes a systematic procedure for addressing delays or non-payments, underlining the importance of adhering to stringent timelines.
