Spouses and domestic partners often transfer property between themselves.
Before 1 July 2017, transfers between spouses or domestic partners were exempt from duty regardless of the type of property. Since 1 July 2017, only transfers of a principal place of residence (PPR) made for no consideration are exempt. There has been no change to the exemption for transfers resulting from the breakdown of a marriage or domestic relationship.
