Transfer duty - previously known as stamp duty - is a State tax collected on the sale, transfer or partial transfer of property including land and land rights. Certain property transfers require an independent transfer duty valuation to assist the government calculate the correct amount of duty to be paid.

Cityside undertakes transfer duty valuations for all classes of property including residential, rural acreage, vacant land, commercial office, retail and industrial property across Sydney and most regional NSW locations.

Why do I need a transfer duty valuation report?

Revenue NSW requires an independent transfer duty valuation when a property transfer occurs between related parties (such as family members), related legal entities (such as a trust or superannuation fund) and on transfers that do not involve a licensed real estate agent.

The valuation report is a legal requirement to ensure the correct amount of duty is collected on the property transfer, with tax rates varying based on property value and the type of property being transferred.

The valuation must be conducted by a suitably qualified property professional and undertaken within three months of the date of transfer.

Requests can be made through our website for a report or quote. We will contact you to confirm our fee and arrange a property inspection. 

Our valuer will promptly inspect the property and provide a transfer duty valuation report to you and your nominated conveyancer or solicitor.
