What is it?
If you and your home are eligible, you can choose to defer payment of conveyance duty on your purchase of the home.
An eligible person for deferred duty is someone’s who eligible for either the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) or the Home Buyer Concession Scheme (HBCS). An eligible property is one that has a price at or below the relevant HBCS property threshold.
Your home is eligible for deferred duty whether it’s new, substantially renovated or established, as long as you meet the appropriate requirements. The duty deferred must be $1,000 or more.
