Pensioner duty concession scheme and deferral

The Pensioner Duty Concession Scheme (PDCS) assists eligible pensioners who own a residential home, to move to accommodation more suited to their needs – for example, moving from a house to a townhouse by reducing the conveyance duty payable on their purchase of a residential home or residential vacant land.

The  PDCS will be extended to 30 June 2021 however the property thresholds will change.

For transactions entered between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020, eligible pensioner who receive a partial duty concession may also be eligible to defer any remaining duty payable if they have at least 75 per cent equity in the property they purchase.
