How much does conveyancing cost?
What is stamp duty?
Transfer duty or stamp duty as it’s more commonly known, is a tax or duty that must be paid when you acquire a property – even if you receive that property as a gift or if it is obtained through a company or trust.

And it’s something that is calculated on a case-by-case basis.
It’s important to budget for stamp duty because it’s an expense that is on top of mortgage fees and any other costs that are part of acquiring property.
If you’d like to know more, we recommend you visit the Queensland Government website that outlines all the finer details of transfer duty and how it might apply to you.
I’m a first home buyer, how will stamp duty affect me?
Stamp duty relief for first home buyers applies to both new build home purchases and existing buildings and is also available on land purchases, where the land is being used to build a new-build property.
Total stamp duty relief is only available on first time purchases, if the value of the purchase is below $500,000. Properties which cost more than this will incur further stamp duty, regardless of whether they are a first home or not.
When it comes to land, for full stamp duty exemptions to apply, that land must be worth less than $250,000.
