Sale of land for rates arrears
  • Last updated:
  • 30 Jun 2021

The provisions within the Local Government Regulation 2012 empower council to make a resolution to sell a 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 occurs 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.


Details of the 2021 auction, should one be required, will be published on this web page in early October 2021. 


For more details or assistance contact council.
