Change of Address of Association

This page aims to help you complete an electronic Change of Address of Association dealing form which is required to alter the address for service of notices on a community, neighbourhood or precinct association. Section 21 Community Land Management Act 1989 sets out the requirements for changing the address of an association.

An association may change its address for service of notices by resolving to change its address at a general meeting of the association in accordance with section 21 Community Land Management Act 1989. The change of address does not become effective until the Change of Address of Association form is registered.

Written notice of a change of address must be given to the community association if a precinct association changes its address. Similarly, a neighbourhood association that is part of a community and/or precinct association must give written notice to each association.
