Information on Specific Transaction Types

  • Natural Love and Affection
  • For a transaction to be effected by Natural Love and Affection, no consideration (financial or otherwise) must pass
  • Profits may pass for natural love and affection between:
    • Father or Mother to Daughter or Son
    • Brother and Sister, providing that they have the same parent
    • Grandfather or Grandmother, and Grandson or Granddaughter
  • Profits may pass between extended family members in a single transaction providing that evidence of the relationship chain can be shown. The Stamp Duty fee shall apply separately to each ‘link’ in the relationship chain. i.e., a Transfer from Uncle to Niece would be considered as Uncle – Mother (CI $50), Mother – Daughter (CI $50). No further Registration Fees would be applied.
