Everything you need to know about stamp duty in NSW

When you’re preparing finances to buy property, make sure you’ve calculated how much you’ll need to pay in stamp duty and know when it’s payable.

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.

The amount of stamp duty payable is based on the valuation of the property. Stamp duty is calculated on the contract sale price or the property’s current market value, whichever is higher.

Highly recommend Justin for those first home buyers who are new to the whole buying process. I will most definitely be using them for the future and recommending them to others.

Amanda and Justin are fantastic to deal with. We were overseas when our house sold and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything was taken care of for us. A completely hassle free sale. We’ve sold two houses with them now and would happily go back to them anytime and highly recommend them to everyone.
