Stamp Duty Paused for First Home Buyers in New South Wales.

August 2020 In Home Buyers Advice


7th August, 2020

If you are a first home buyer looking to build in New South Wales, then you are in luck!

The New South Wales Government has temporarily scrapped stamp duty on new homes under $800,000, saving eligible first home buyers thousands of dollars.

Under the new changes, which came into effect on the 1st of August, the threshold for stamp duty for first home buyers has increased from $650,000 to $800,000, with tapered discounts for properties up to $1 million.

The change only applies to new homes and vacant land and will last for 12 months.

This announcement is very welcome news for first home buyers looking to build, especially at a time when so many are finding it harder than ever to purchase their first home.
