Sale of land for rates arrears
  • Last updated:
  • 24 Oct 2019

The provisions within the Local Government Regulation 2012 empower council to make a resolution to a sell property.  This applies to properties where rates or charges are in arrears for a period greater than three years. The outstanding rates are recovered by the sale of the land or property.

This process is conducted annually. Council must end the Sale of Land process if :

  • the amount of the overdue rates or charges 
  • all expenses that council incurs in attempting to sell the land

 are both paid in full.

To go on the mailing list to ensure notification of upcoming auctions please contact council.


Please note that the Auction scheduled for 26 October 2019 has been cancelled.  If any future properties go to Auction the notice will be published on this page and also in the Public Notices section of the Sunshine Coast Daily.

The Sale of Land process for 2019 has been finalised.

This process is conducted annually.

The Sale of Land process for 2020 will be commencing shortly.
