You may not have received a bill yet due to delays in us receiving the official notification of the change of ownership from the Queensland Government. Typically this takes 4-8 weeks. When we receive formal notification, we will issue your first bill.
As the new owner of the property, you will be responsible for paying this bill in full. As part of the settlement process it is recommended that your conveyancer request a Unitywater water search, which is used to determine how much the previous owner needs to pay as part of the settlement process. This settlement adjustment may be listed on your bill as a ‘Property Settlement Payment’ or be reflected in your settlement arrangement by another means. Your conveyancer will be able to provide more information.
