Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about Queensland transfer duty

How is stamp duty calculated in QLD?

In Queensland, the calculation of stamp duty is based on the dutiable value of the property, which varies on a graduated scale.

For residential properties designated as owner-occupied, a concessional rate of stamp duty is applied, differing from the rate used for other types of property transactions.

The stamp duty rates for owner-occupied homes are as follows:

  • $350,000 or less: Stamp duty is charged at $1.00 per $100 of the property value.
  • $350,000 - $540,000: The duty is $3,500 plus an additional $3.50 per $100 over $350,000.
  • $540,000 - $1,000,000: The duty is $10,150 plus an additional $4.50 per $100 over $540,000.
  • Over $1,000,000: The duty is $30,850 plus an additional $5.75 per $100 over $1,000,000.

Investment properties do not qualify for these owner-occupied rates and are subject to the full stamp duty rate.

What are other Mandatory Upfront Fees?

In addition to stamp duty, the QLD government imposes land transfer fees, which are calculated based on the property purchase price. There's also a fixed mortgage registration fee. Furthermore, when securing a home loan, generally a deposit is required along with other possible associated costs. Our calculator for deposits and upfront costs can provide more detailed information.

What are the eligibility for the Home Concession Rate

To qualify for the home concession rate on stamp duty in QLD, you must:

  • Move into the home within 1 year of the settlement date and live there daily.
  • Not rent out, sell, or give exclusive possession of the property or any part of it before moving in.

Special conditions apply for buying vacant land intended for building a home.

Foreign owners can access the home concession but are also liable for the additional foreign acquirer duty (AFAD)

Does Additional Foreign Acquirer Duty (AFAD) apply to me?

Foreign owners in QLD are subject to AFAD, which is 7% of the property value, additional to the standard stamp duty rates. You are not considered a foreign owner if you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or a New Zealand citizen with a special category visa. Additional costs may apply to foreign owners beyond the stamp duty surcharge.
