Sale of Land for Rates Arrears
  • Last updated:

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.
