  • Last updated:
  • 30 Sep 2016

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 3 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.

This process is conducted annually.

Council Resolution (OM16/73) to commence the Sale of Land process for 2016 was made at the Ordinary Council meeting on 19 May 2016.

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.
