'17 Norton Street Ashfield'

The attachment to the council report says that the property was listed as part of 9 Victoria Street until 10 March 2009 , at which time the Valuer General advised "the lot had been identified as a residual lot from the original subdivision and the legal owner was the Estate of the Late Charles Clarence Gale."

Agenda Council Meeting 23 June 2020
Item No:         C0620(3) Item 6

Subject:         17 Norton Street, Ashfield        

RECOMMENDATION

THAT Council:

1.   Approves the sale of 17 Norton Street, Ashfield by Council pursuant to s.713(2)(a) of the Local Government Act 1993; and

2.   Authorises the CEO to undertake all actions and negotiation in relation to the sale including the setting of a reserve price and signing all relevant documents to complete the sale.

DISCUSSION

The property at 17 Norton Street, Ashfield currently has outstanding rates in the order of $12,941.82. Rates have been outstanding for more than 5 years.

The property is a residual vacant lot of 28m2 sitting between 9 Victoria Street and 19 Norton Street Ashfield. There is an existing right of way to 1-7 Victoria Road at the rear. 

The property is owned by The Estate of the Late Charles Clarence Gale. Mr Gale died in 1958 and preliminary searches by Council’s Legal Team have not ascertained a current beneficiary/owner. The cost to undertake additional searches will likely outweigh the value of the property and the amount of overdue rates.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

If the property is sold, Council will be able to recover all or part of the overdue rates and going forward rates will be charged to the new owner
