Frequently Asked Question


What happens if I donít pay my rates?


If you are behind with instalments, we will send a reminder to you in August of the year in question. If the amount due is not paid at that time or, at any other time, two or more instalments are unpaid, we will issue a Final Notice. This will give you 14 days to pay the whole amount due (not just what is in arrears). If the whole amount is still not paid, we will apply to the Court for a Summary Warrant, together with a 10% Penalty. We may then pass details to our collection agents for recovery of the amount due.
