What is Security of Payment?
The Security of Payment Act is a crucial legislative framework underpinning the construction industry. Specifically, the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) grants claimants the unequivocal right to demand, obtain, and recover payments owed by liable parties. This pivotal legislation empowers contractors, developers, suppliers, and subcontractors to assert their rightful progress payments for rendered services or supplied goods. Notably, the Act establishes a structured process to address instances of delayed or absent payments. It is imperative to recognise that the Act imposes strict and concise timeframes that all involved parties must adhere to.
