Sale of land for rates arrears

Council can recover outstanding rates on properties that are more than three years in arrears.

Sale of land for rates arrears

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 (3) years. The outstanding rates are recovered by the sale of the land or property.

Sale of Land process for 2023 has been finalised.

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

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

 are both paid in full.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list to ensure you are notified of upcoming auctions please contact council.
