Under the New South Wales Home Builders Bonus Scheme there is a Stamp Duty exemption for new housing purchased by people aged sixty five (65) and older. That exemption has now been extended to persons aged fifty five (55) and older. However, that extension to the “younger” age group applies only to Contracts entered into between 2nd November, 2011 and 1st November, 2012. Whether or not the government will then extend it for a further timeframe is unknown at this stage.
