Property ownership and sale notice forms

Whether you're buying, selling or changing address, it's important to let Council know.

Buying a property notification

If you purchase a property in City of Port Phillip your solicitor or conveyancer must notify the Victorian State Revenue Office within 28 days of acquisition.

Your solicitor or conveyancer will also need to send the PEXA Notice of Acquisition to the City of Port Phillip when you purchase, transfer or for survivorship purposes.

Please download and complete the Notice of Acquisition form (PDF 637 KB) and lodge online or see PEXA to retrieve a copy.

Please ensure you provide us with an up to date residential and postal address along with email or mobile/telephone contact. Then we will ensure you receive rate notices or any other correspondence or contact from us.

Selling a property

Your solicitor or conveyancer will need to obtain a Land Information Certificate. Contact us to request a verbal update prior to your settlement date to confirm any rates outstanding or to be taken into consideration at settlement.

Change of address

Have you changed your mailing address since you last received a notice from the City of Port Phillip? If so, please notify us in writing of your new mailing address.

You can do this by completing a change of address online or completing the print change of address form (PDF 48 KB), and forwarding a copy to the City of Port Phillip Rate Department at: Private Bag 3, St Kilda VIC 3182.
