Queensland residential real estate to increase 3% more for foreign buyers from 1 October 2016

by Andrew Lind on 15 June, 16

The Qld State Budget earlier this week announced:

“The Government will introduce a 3 per cent transfer duty surcharge to be applied to foreign purchasers who acquire residential property in Queensland from 1 October 2016. This will ensure that foreign purchasers of residential land, who benefit from Government services and infrastructure, make a contribution to their delivery. This measure will have no direct impact on Queensland residents.”

The budget papers state that this is predicted to raise $90M over the next 4 years.
