A Land Information Certificate provides information about a particular property, including valuations, the amount of general rates and/or special rates, charges, arrears/interest if applicable and specifies flood levels and any applicable. The certificate is valid for 3 months from the date of issue and council will provide a verbal update within this period.
If you are selling a property in the Hepburn Shire Council you will need to obtain a Land Information Certificate to ensure that the adjustments are correctly applied at the time of settlement. Your solicitor/conveyancer should apply for and obtain this information on your behalf.
