- complete in person at our Customer Service Centre, 30 Frances Street Randwick (currently closed - see COVID-19 updates).
Restrictions to changing names
If you are a property owner / ratepayer you cannot use this form to change the name that appears on your Rates notice. This is because our records reflect the name that is held on the Certificate of Title for your land.
To change your name on your Rates notice you will need to officially change your name on your land title first. Contact NSW Land Registry Services for further information or call us on 1300 722 542 and ask to speak to one of our Name and Address Registry (NAR) Officers.
If a debtor account is associated with a legal contract or lease, changes to the debtor name will require a new agreement.

Please note you will need to go into the library to validate your change of address or name change with physical documents - a recent letter or bill with the new address is acceptable. For further inquiries please call the library on 9093 6400.
