Step 2: Review Gazette
See what the attorney says about the property
In order for a property to be sold by the sheriff, the plaintiff's attorneys must publish a notice in the government gazette. The entry contains useful information and should always be reviewed before bidding.

Some examples of what the gazette entry may contain

  • the number of parkings bays or garages
  • details of exclusive use areas such as gardens
  • the condition of the property
  • the type of property - is it a vacant stand, finished house or still under construction
  • details of cottages or outbuildings
  • occupation - is the property occupied or empty
  • anything else that the attorneys felt it was important for bidders to know

The gazette entry also contains the details of the attorneys, who you can contact to enquire about outstanding rates and taxes on the property.

The full gazette entry is available on the HQ Report.
