Waverley Council NSW has kindly offered the following comments (in blue) relating to garage sales.
(If there is no blue answer on a particular question, then a comment wasn't made.)

  • Are permits required? The view of the Area Manager is that if the garage sale is a one-off , one-day thing for the genuine purpose of selling a few unwanted household items, no consent is required.
  • Are there any laws controlling the posting of garage sale signs?
  • Are there limits to how many garage sales one person can hold per year? The view of the Area Manager is that regular garage sales are different to just selling off a few spare household items.  This wold require some kind of consent and likely not be permissible.  I suggest such a person investigate the various local community markets and get a stall.
  • Are there laws about using the footpath in front of the person's house? Use of the footpath is not encouraged. If items are on the footpath, be prepared to move everything back onto your site if the rangers show up. Best to stay within property boundary.
  • Other comments offered. For more information you can contact the Area Manager (South) Development and Building Assessment
    Waverley Council ph: 02 9369 8076
  • Is there a page on the web site that covers the laws relating to garage sales?
