  • Title Clarification – Multiple Title Allotments Listed Within The One Title Document

South Gippsland Water has recently become aware of a number of property owners within Alberton who own multiple title allotments listed on the one title document. From the outset of the Sewerage Scheme South Gippsland Water stated that it would charge for the Sewerage Scheme Contributions on a per title basis.

As a result, for those property owners who own multiple title allotments which are listed on the one title, South Gippsland Water will charge only one Sewerage Scheme Contribution, i.e. one charge per title document.

For these properties, in future, if a lot is sold off separately or subdivided, then an additional New Customer Contribution charge would be applicable to the new owner.

South Gippsland Water last month mailed property owners with the title details and subsequent calculation of estimated Scheme Contribution amounts to ensure our details and records were correct. Should you believe that our records are incorrect and that your title allotments are listed on one title document, please contact South Gippsland Water with the relevant title documentation.

South Gippsland Water will require a copy of the relevant title document to up-date our records and billing system prior to calculation of the final Scheme Contribution amounts.

South Gippsland Water is awaiting the delivery and installation of the Electrical Control Panels to finalise the construction of the Alberton Sewerage Scheme. South Gippsland Water will not issue invoices for the Scheme Contribution Amounts until after completion of construction and the system is declared operational and ready for connections. This is anticipated to occur late August or September 2014.
