I am not sure what you mean.

If you buy a property there will be rates to pay.

If you rent a property , rates will be included in the rent.

Rates are based around land/property valuations

Look HERE

Council tax in NZ is known as "rates". If you rent a place your landlord is responsible for paying them. If you buy a property then you pay the rates. Your water/sewerage bill is inc in your rates so no need to pay for those separately (unless this is different depending on where in NZ you are?)

Hope that helps...

Water is metered and a separate charge in Auckland - our bills have a little graph on them that shows how you compare to other households with similar occupancy - ours is always well below the average two person household and cost $35 to $40 per month.

You can search and view any property on the Auckland Council GIS viewer it will tell you how much the rates are.
