Does anyone know much about stamp duty?

The timing couldn't be worse. I've just reached settlement on my first property and did intend on making it an investment. I've paid stamp duty but due to corona everyone's spooked and I can't find someone to rent it. I'm thinking of I might as well just move in myself. Does this mean I get a refund on stamp duty as I would then meet the criteria for the first home buyers assistance scheme?

  • don't know about that but if you move in and make it your primary place of residence for more than 6 months then even if you then rent it out and claim negative gearing you may not have to pay capital gains if you sell - used to be that way - you would need to get proper advice

    • Thanks mate.

       

  • I know that itis the duty of a stamp to see your mail arrives safely at it's destination.

     

     

  • OK so you are playing the tax game to the max.

    Buy and own property for investment but rent elsewhere.

    In the current environment you have certainly landed in a shit heap.

    If it was me and living in the house for next 12 months or so was not too difficult then do it.

    Vacant for more than 60 days and any insurance you have on the investment/rental property is non existent (uninsured)

    Here's the next scenario - IF you are umlucky enough to find a tennant to move in, in the near future, after a week or so they claim NO RENT because of employment due to Corrona virus and you cop it up the arse.

    As for stamp duty I have NFI.

  • First Home Owner Grant should apply to you. There are a couple so check your eligibility.  Visit Revenue NSW website and go to Grants.  Assuming you are eligible, you must live in the home within 12 months of settlement for a period of 6 months minimum. If land only, you need to build a house ( I think within 2 years of settlement). Of course, if you keep as an investment then your are not entitled to any exemption nor concession.  Best bet, check the Revenue NSW website

"I don't think you can take too much from the article.
Neither Dogs or Titans can score points. The Broncos can but they were starved of possession, making them tired and ineffective.  "

"This is not about serial  or mass killers and yes I take your point in that regard. This is about every day crime.  Big difference. Again, a hell of a lot of this comes back to Americas bulshit gun laws.

The speed of that game was incredible and the weight of possession was overbearing for the Broncs,  hence the scoreline. But for the most part, the B…"

Six on the bench?

While there is no reserve grade would it make sense to have six on the bench. Still the same number of interchanges but coaches can use all six if they choose too. This would mean that if teams have injuries the replacements would have had some game…
