First Home Buyer Assistance scheme

If you’re a first home buyer, you may be entitled to a concessional rate of transfer duty or even an exemption from paying it altogether under the First Home Buyers Assistance scheme (FHBAS).

Unlike the First Home Owner Grant, the FHBAS applies to

  • buying an existing home
  • buying a new home and
  • vacant land on which you intend to build a home.

The NSW Government increased the transfer (stamp) duty thresholds for the purchase of new homes and vacant land from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021.

The tables below show the thresholds from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021 and the thresholds for agreements dated between 1 July 2017 to 31 July 2020 and continuing from 1 August 2021.
