Purchasing Costs

You need to be prepared for all the cost involved in property transactions, many of which are unavoidable government charges.  

Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty is a tax that you will pay to the Victorian government. 

The amount depends on many variables including:

  • Price/value of the property
  • Whether you are buying the property as your home, as a first home buyer, or as an investment property
  • Whether the property is brand new
  •  Whether you are eligible for a pensioner or other concession

First Home Buyers

First home buyers of established property or vacant land with a purchase price of $600,000 or less are exempt from paying stamp duty.  

If you are a first home buyer and have brought a brand-new property or purchased off-the-plan (for a dutiable value of up to $750,000), not only is your purchase free of stamp duty, but you could also be entitled to the First Home Owners Grant of between $10,000 (Melbourne metropolitan) and $20,000 (Victoria regional areas). The dutiable value is often less than the total price if there is a discount when buying off-the-plan, as construction is often not yet complete.


Principle Place of Residence

If you are purchasing a property to live in as you principle place of residence for $500,000 or less, a stamp duty concession applies.  To qualify for this concession you must live in the home for a continuous period of at least 12 months, within 12 months of settlement.  This can reduce your stamp duty payable by as much as $3,100.


Investors and Off the Plan Purchasers 

The stamp duty concession concessions for purchasing-off-the-plan were removed for investors.  Any contracts entered into after 1st July 2017 do not attract stamp duty concessions.


Owners Corporation involved in any of the above

You would need to add approximately $195 to the above price. Only IF we need to order such a certificate from an Owners Corporation (Body Corporate) ONLY if it applies to a purchase.
