If you are looking to buy a house in 2022 and this is your first house, you should know there is a new stamp duty exemption coming your way. Read this article.
The Budget 2021 was approved, and it has included a list of National Budgetary requests in that Budget, including a new stamp duty exemption for a first-time house buyer.
If you are looking to buy your first home next year, this stamp duty exemption can save you tons of money.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
STAMP DUTY EXEMPTION FOR THE PURCHASE OF FIRST RESIDENTIAL HOME
The Government will provide 100% stamp duty exemption on the instrument of transfer and loan agreement for the purchase
of a first residential home value priced up to RM500,000 by Malaysian citizens.
For the first home’s purchase up to RM500,000, stamp duty on the transfer and loan agreement instrument is fully exempted from the property’s value.
The Sale And Purchase Agreement has to be executed from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2025.
EXTENSION OF PERIOD OF STAMP DUTY EXEMPTION TO REVIVE ABANDONED HOUSING PROJECTS
To support efforts in reviving abandoned housing projects, stamp duty exemption is given on the following instruments:
i. Rescuing Contractor/Developer
a. loan agreements to finance the revival of the abandoned housing projects; and
b. instruments of transfer of title for land and houses in abandoned housing projects.

These exemptions are given on the above instruments executed from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2025.
