Certificates

Council has developed an online certificate application for property or rating certificates. Property or rating certificates are usually requested by legal representatives for the purpose of property conveyance.

Processing times will vary depending upon the certificate and property type.

A separate application is required for each land title lot. The exception is for rating certificates where multiple land title lots are valued and rated together.
