Sale of land for rates arrears
  • Last updated:
  • 01 Nov 2021

The provisions within the Local Government Regulation 2012 empower council to make a resolution to sell a property where some or all of the overdue rates have been overdue for at least three years.

This applies to properties where rates are in arrears for a period greater than three years. The outstanding rates are recovered by the sale of the land or property.

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 paid in full.

  • The Sale of Land process for 2021 has been finalised
  • This process is conducted annually
  • The Sale of Land process will recommence in 2022
  • Please check council's website for Sale of Land updates throughout the year.
