To ensure our property records are accurate and up to date, you must tell us of any change of name, address or ownership as soon as possible.
When ownership of a property changes, the liability for payment of rates remains with the owner until a notice of acquisition is received.
Council must be notified in writing.
Failure to submit a notice within one month of a transfer may result in a substantial penalty.
If you buy, sell or transfer a property between related parties you must advise Council within 28 days by filling in and returning the following form:

If you change address or change your name with Births, Deaths & Marriages, or change your company name with Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), you must notify Council’s Rates Office in writing: PO Box 1, GLEN WAVERLEY VIC 3150. It is your responsibility to do so.
