Property Transfer (land only) – Offtake Assignment

This process relates to property transfers NOT including a water allocation whereby the infrastructure (pump/meter) that provides for the taking of water, may need to be assigned to the buyer

Upon entering a sale contract the purchaser and seller complete a Transfer of Water Allocation Application form. The application is completed and submitted to SunWater with the required documentation detailed on the form. Although there is no water allocation included in the sale our application form is still required to capture the relevant information required (Part F of form does not require completion).
