About the Council's rating information database

The information displayed for each property is taken from the Council's rating information database (RID) and rates record.

The RID is a list of information that is used to set and assess rates on a property (rating unit) in a particular year. The rates record includes other information on the state of the rates account.

Wellington City Council maintains the RID and rates record for the Wellington City area for both itself and Greater Wellington Regional Council. 

Other property information
