Abandoned goods forms

Upcoming changes to the Abandoned Goods Certificate process

As of 1 November 2021, the Commissioner for Consumer Protection will no longer issue Abandoned Goods Certificates due to recent policy changes. We will continue to accept applications for Abandoned Goods Certificates up to, and including, 31 October 2021. 

Please note that this change does not remove a landlord's legal obligation to properly handle goods abandoned by a tenant at the end of a tenancy. Information about the abandoned goods process is available on our Abandoned goods at a rental property page.

Information about the use of these forms are available from the following pages:

Please be aware a request for an abandoned goods certificate (AGC) from the department is not compulsory.  However, the AGC provides protection to applicants from any future claim against the goods made by the tenant.
