2011 Transfer Duty Threshold

Posted in Property Finance

1 Comment

Home buyers and investors were given a welcome break in the 2011 Budget when Finance minister Pravin Gordhan announced that no transfer duties will be paid when buying a property up to R600 000 on purchase agreements concluded on or after February 23rd, 2011 – raising the threshold from R500 000.

This is a saving of up to R9 000 on the costs of purchase.

Transfer duty will be payable at a rate of 3% to the value from R600 001 to R1 000 000; an amount of R12 000 plus 5% to the value between R1 000 000 and R1 500 000; and an amount of R37 000 plus 8% to amounts above R1.500 000 for properties that cost more than R600 000.
