What is stamp duty?

Stamp duty, also known as transfer duty, is a one-off government fee paid by the purchaser of a property in South Australia. It is payable on the transfer of property.

Stamp duty is calculated on the purchase price or the market value of the property, whichever is higher.

So the higher the property value, the more expensive the stamp duty will be.
