    Hi guys, feeling a bit dense tonight, trying to find out what stamp duty is payable on SA homes, you know the levels etc upto $$$ is 1% etc etc etc. Trying to work a few figures out.


    Also, when you have a new home built apart from building costs, land cost and the proverbial stamp duty is there anything else to pay??

    Hi Howard, thanks for that and will indeed look you up. Have I got this right that we would get $4,000 plus $7,000 = $11,000 (as currently laid out) or am I misreading it.

    For properties with a market value up to $400,000 you would receive $14,500 currently. This represents:

    $7,000 usual Federal Grant (no sign of this discontinuing)

    $3,500 additional "Boost" Grant (introduced by the Federal Government to combat the GFC), and ceases from 1st Jan 2010.

    $4,000 SA Govt "Bonus" Grant (this phases out at a rate of $8 per $100 in excess of $400,000 market value, no sign of this discontinuing).


    Market value for established dwellings is normally the contract price.

    If building, it's the sum of the building contract + land value at the time the building contract is made.


    So far as other costs are concerned:

    - finishing expenses not included in the contract. Can range from carpets, curtains, concrete driveways/paths, landscaping etc.

    - the cost of your living accomodation whilst building, i.e. rent.

    - you pay interest on any loan required to build the property, normally structured on an interest only basis payable monthly on the balance owing.
