De facto relationship of 7 years, Tasmania - split/settlement Having come to an amicable agreement I assume this still needs to be done via a court stamped settlement order (no children involved)? Question mainly is, property in joint names, one person is taking over as part of property settlement agreement with a cash payment to the other party, so merely taking one person's name off the title. My recollection of this is that stamp duty is not payable again due to forming a de facto settlement and merely removing one parties name from the title. Stamp duty is payable on purchases but not a settlement where one party is already a joint owner. Can you please confirm or clarify this? Cheers.
