Transfer duty home concession eligibility tester

You may be able to claim a transfer duty concession if you are acquiring an existing home to live in or vacant land on which you intend to build your first home.

You will not be eligible for a concession if you demolish the existing home before living there as your principal place of residence.

Use the interactive help below to determine if you are eligible for a home, first home or first home vacant land transfer duty concession.

  • The first home concession only applies to residential land valued under $550,000. You may still be able to claim a home concession.
  • The first home vacant land concession only applies to vacant land valued under $400,000.

The changes will apply to contracts signed on or after 9 June 2024. If your contract was signed before this date, the previous thresholds will apply.

This eligibility tester does not yet include the changes. It will be updated shortly.
