Transfer of mortgage toolkit

Transfers of Queensland mortgages are dutiable transactions, and registered self assessors must assess them in OSRconnect.

This toolkit brings together everything you need to know about self assessing duty on the transfer of a mortgage.

A mortgage is an existing right under the Duties Act 2001. The transfer of a mortgage, including the debt secured by the mortgage, is assessed as the transfer of an existing right.

A concessional rate of duty ($5) applies to the transfer of a mortgage that is solely over land in Queensland.

Read the public ruling on the concessional duty on a transfer of mortgage (DA024.1) to find out more.
