How no stamp duty for ACT’s first home buyers could help retirees move north to the beach.


From July 1, 2019, eligible first home buyers in the ACT won’t have to pay stamp duty on their first property purchase. This could open up a whole new group of potential buyers, freeing up retirees who might want to move to a contemporary new home, in a warm climate close to the beach.
