Do I Incur Stamp Duty Tax When Transferring 50% of My Property to My Partner?

Stamp Duty Impact: Transferring 50% Property to Partner

Transfers between family members are liable to transfer duty, however some transfers may qualify for an exemption or concession. No transfer/stamp duty is payable where a transfer of residential land is between a married couple, or de facto partners and the property being transferred is either:


  • the family home (principal place of residence)
  • vacant land, which is intended to be used as the site of the family home.


As a result of the transfer, the property must be held equally (50-50) by both partners.

De facto couples must be living together for at least two years before applying for this exemption.
