Transferring property in New South Wales (NSW)


1 Download and complete the Transfer form from the Department of Land and Property Information website.

2 Send the completed Transfer to the Office of State Revenue (OSR) to be noted for stamp duty. 

If you are seeking an exemption of duty, for example, for a transfer being made pursuant to a binding Financial Agreement or for transfer of the matrimonial home, you may need to complete an exemption form and provide a copy of supporting documentation, such as your Financial Agreement or marriage certificate.

3 Lodge the following documents at the Land and Property Information (LPI) once the stamped Transfer has been returned to you from the OSR:-

  • Transfer Form;
  • Notice of Sale or Transfer of Land (a form which is used to notify local council and service authorities of the change of name);
  • Certificate of Title;
  • Fee;
  • Discharge of Mortgage (if applicable).
