The Security of Payment Act
The NSW Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (often shortened to Security of Payment Act, or SOPA) was created to resolve payment disputes in the building industry through a process called “adjudication”.
What Is Security of Payment Adjudication?
Security of Payment adjudication is a streamlined process that resolves payment disputes.
A written adjudication application can be lodged with an adjudicator.
Adjudicators are usually quantity surveyors, engineers or lawyers – people who understand both the construction industry and the law.
The adjudicator will make a determination.
This determination can be filed at court and registered as a judgment debt.
