Property Transfer Duty
Duty (previously known as “stamp duty”) is a form of taxation charged by the State Government, under the Duties Act 2001 , when someone acquires an interest in property, usually by buying a property. Normally, duty must be paid by the purchaser/transferee within three months of the dutiable transaction.
When you buy or acquire a property, the person(s) selling or transferring the property must pay any unpaid land tax and they will need to obtain a Land Tax Search Application Form (previously known as an Estimate of Liability at Settlement Date request) to determine how much, if any, needs to be paid.
