Local Government (Rating) Act 2002

66 Registration of charging order for judgment for rates


Despite rule 17.52 of the High Court Rules 2016, a charging order issued under rule 17.41 or 17.42 for a judgment of rates, and registered against a rating unit under rule 17.48, continues in force until a memorandum of satisfaction is registered under rule 17.51.


The Limitation Act 2010 applies to subsection (1).


If a charging order for a judgment for rates is registered against a rating unit, the ratepayer must not register a dealing against the unit without the consent of the local authority.


This section applies to a charging order made under this Act or under the Rating Powers Act 1988.


This section and sections 67 to 83 do not apply to Māori freehold land or to the rates payable in respect of Māori freehold land.
