The Australian Banking Association has welcomed the First Home Buyer Choice legislation introduced today by the NSW Government.
The ABA supports proposals which assist first home buyers to enter the housing market.
This policy will allow first home buyers, that meet certain criteria, to be able to choose between paying upfront stamp duty or a smaller annual property fee.
The policy will remove a barrier to home ownership by providing the option to reduce up-front costs for certain first home buyers at the time of sale. It should encourage greater social mobility by removing a hurdle to some property transactions in NSW.
