We recognise the passing of a loved one is a difficult time for all involved. However, when someone who is a registered ratepayer passes away, it is important that you inform us as soon possible so our records can be updated appropriately.
Notifying Council of a deceased ratepayer helps ensure no overdue rates payments are incurred while an estate is being settled. This will not change the property ownership details. In order to change the title deeds, you should speak with your legal representative or contact the NSW Land Registry Services.
When you contact us, please provide the name and address of the person who has died and the assessment number (located on the rate notice). You will also need supporting documentation in the form of a death certificate or a statutory declaration.
