Security of Payment Act NSW

If you are in New South Wales and are a party to a contract under which either building and construction work or related goods and/or services are being provided to you, then the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act NSW affects you.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for disputes to arise over payment claims made by both individuals and organisations, and as such, the Security of Payment Act NSW (commonly referred to as SOPA) looks to ensure that anyone either carrying out construction work, or supplying related goods and services under a construction contract receives payment in a timely manner.

If you are making a claim under the Security of Payment Act NSW, the Act gives you rights further to those allowed under the construction contract that you are a party to.  The Act aims to assist with cash flow by providing a quick and easy way to deal with claims for payment.
