A Kings­land house is be­ing sold by an Auck­land real es­tate com­pany af­ter Auck­land Coun­cil has ex­hausted all at­tempts to re­cover from the own­ers a rates debt to­talling $33,598.45. It is one of eight prop­er­ties be­ing sold be­cause of large over­due rates bills. The pro­ceeds of the sale will be used to pay the out­stand­ing rates on the prop­erty plus legal costs and court fees. Any bal­ance is re­turned to the par­tic­u­lar ratepayer (usu­ally the owner and reg­is­tered pro­pri­etor of the prop­erty). Auck­land Coun­cil’s Chief Fi­nan­cial Of­fi­cer, Kevin Ram­say says that the coun­cil works hard to as­sist ratepay­ers who have gen­uine hard­ship is­sues.
