Stamp Duty FAQs

When do you pay stamp duty?

When to pay stamp duty depends on the state. Typically, stamp duty is payable between one and three months after signing the contract of sale and completing the home loan settlement

For example, in New South Wales (NSW), you must pay stamp duty within 3 months of settlement. You must pay within 30 days of signing in Victoria (VIC) and Queensland (QLD). In South Australia, you must pay stamp duty before you can get registered on the Certificate of Title (i.e. before settlement).
