LIST: More than 80 properties could sell over unpaid rates

A HUGE number of properties could be auctioned off by Gladstone Regional Council to recoup unpaid rates.

A notice of intention to sell the land was published in the Queensland Government Gazette on December 8.

"This notice is given because rates or charges levied by the Council on the below properties are at least three years overdue or default judgment has been granted by the Magistrates Court on vacant or commercial land," it reads.

"Where rates or charges on a property are more than three years overdue, or are more than one year and default judgment has been granted by the Magistrates Court on vacant or commercial land the council may sell the property at public auction and use the proceeds to discharge the overdue rates or charges."

No date for any potential auction has been set.

"If the overdue rates or charges are not paid within three months of the notice, the council will issue a Notice of Sale to the property owner and commence proceedings to sell the property," the gazette reads.

There are 82 properties listed throughout the region with overdue rates which could potentially be auctioned.

The total each property owns has been published, with the total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

However, often a large amount do not make it to that stage.
