Security of payment – WA

The Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Bill 2021 passed WA State Parliament in June 2021. This note will be updated to reflect these incoming changes.

The Construction Contracts Act 2004 (WA) came into operation on 1 January 2005. It applies to almost all contracts for construction work in Western Australia entered into after that date including housing projects, but not contracts related to the oil and gas or mining industries, and work wholly related to erecting and maintaining sculptures and the like.
