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
