Do I need to pay my Council, Water and/or Strata rates if I have sold my property?

If you are selling your property you are required to pay for any rates or levies for the time you are the owner of the property. These rates and levies will be calculated as an adjustment for the funds payable by the buyer on settlement. If you have any rates and levies which are due shortly before settlement you should consult with Prime Conveyancing before you make any payments. The settlement adjustments calculated by us will ensure that you only pay your proportion of these rates up to the date of settlement. 

Prime Conveyancing are property solicitors who will ensure your rights are protected and we invite you to contact us or obtain a no obligation quote to see how we can assist you.
