What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act in New South Wales, known as the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), is a crucial legislation that grants contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors the right to demand and recover payment for their services and supplies.
Under this Act, claimants are empowered to claim progress payments for the work they have performed or the goods and services they have provided. It serves as a protective measure, ensuring that those in the construction industry can promptly receive payment for their efforts, preventing delays or non-payment.
The Act establishes a specific process that claimants can follow in the event of late or non-payment, providing a legal framework to resolve payment disputes efficiently. It is essential to adhere to the Act’s strict and time-sensitive requirements, making compliance crucial for all parties involved in construction projects.
