Building and construction industry Security of Payment legislation

Australian laws allow a contractor or builder to make a non-payment claim for completed work and/or for the supply of goods/services provided to a client or principal contractor.
{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes

Do you need to lodge a non-payment claim for work you have already completed or goods you’ve already supplied? Under the Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act 2009, you can. However, there are strict rules to follow during this process.  

Our experts have collated a detailed explainer on how to handle making a claim for non-payment with your client or principal contractor in Australian Capital Territory. Find out how to claim, what you can claim and more.

One key element of the process is adjudication – an independent person will be brought in to assess whether the claim is valid. This is a more cost-effective approach than taking the matter to court, so may be a good choice when dealing with this serious issue. 

This resource takes you through the whole process, from making the claim through to the steps you may have to take if the matter is unresolved. Arm yourself with the relevant knowledge to defend yourself during a non-payment dispute under Security of Payment legislation.
