City of Belmont WA 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? No permit is required
  • Are there any laws controlling the posting of garage sale signs? The positioning of any form of “mobile” signage is covered by the Activities on Thoroughfares & Trading in Thoroughfares & Public Places Local Law. However, as long as the signage is not left on major junctions, roundabouts and on median strips, don’t cause a traffic hazard and are removed immediately after the event, the City does not take an enforcement view.
  • Are there limits to how many garage sales one person can hold per year? No. However, if someone was having an unusually high number of garage sales and it was alleged that they were running a business from a residential premises, the City would investigate and deal with it in terms of Planning policy. I think everyone has a fair idea of what a garage sale entails and no-one minds a few a year, but more than that would have to be justifiable.
  • Are there laws about using the footpath in front of the person's house? The footpath should not be obstructed with any material, cars etc as it is by its very nature a footpath. However the City would look at the individual situation on its merits and take a common sense approach before considering enforcement.
  • Other comments offered.
  • Is there a page on the web site that covers the laws relating to garage sales?

1) Laws are always subject to change.

3) provides this information in good faith, but will not be held liable or responsible for any losses or penalties incurred as a result of changes to, or misinterpretation of, current council laws as amended from time to time.
