Payment of rates is an issue that can cause problems for both landlords and tenants. You need to be fully aware of who is liable for the payment of rates in any property that you let. If you own more than one rental property, it may be much simpler for you to bundle your properties into an agent account. These accounts entitle you to a discount on your annual rates bill.
Failure to pay your rates can lead to court action, repossession and possibly bankruptcy.
