Under the Security of Payment Act, progress payments are enforced and payment disputes are quickly resolved

The Act’s primary objective is to grant progress payments to contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. Furthermore, it obliges the client to rightfully grant payments and promotes a fair process for both builders and clients.

What is Security of Payments?

Security of Payment guarantees that the person carrying out construction work or supplies goods and services under a construction contract can claim the money owed to them, even in the case of a dispute.

It entitles builders to progress claims without waiting for the end of the contract to get paid.

The Act enforces:

  • Right to progress payment.
  • Right to claim for interest.
  • Right to suspend the work or supply of goods.
  • Right to have a disputed claim be determined fairly by a government-authorised adjudicator.
  • Right to enter a judgment in court if your claim is ignored.

Why is the Security of Payment Act important?

  • Security of Payments ensures that builders are rightfully paid.
  • It enables builders to properly manage their cashflow.
  • It imposes clients to duly respond to payment claims.
  • It gives the builders the right to defend themselves against unjustified non-payments.
