Sale of land for overdue rates

Council has a set process for collecting outstanding rates and charges. If a property owner does not respond to rates notices, reminder notices, collection correspondence and claims lodged against them in the Magistrates Court, and if the outstanding rates and charges continue to remain unpaid, judgement will be sought against them.

If the rates and charges still continue to remain outstanding, these properties may be considered for "Sale of Land for Overdue Rates and Charges" proceedings, generally held each year, pursuant to the Local Government Act 2009 and Local Government Regulation 2012.

This process occurs between August and March each year and any properties eligible for this process will be listed here in January/February each year.
