Take Advantage of IMT and Stamp Duty Exemption to Acquire Your First Home

In recent years, the demand in the real estate market has surpassed supply, leading to a continuous increase in housing prices, especially in densely populated urban areas. To alleviate this issue, the Government introduced Law No. 30-A/2024, dated June 20, which offers an exemption from the Municipal Property Transfer Tax (IMT) and Stamp Duty (IS) for the first purchase of a primary residence.


Key Facts About the New Law

  • IMT and IS Exemption: The new law provides a unique opportunity for young people to purchase their first home without these additional costs.
  • Eligibility: Young individuals aged 35 or under.
  • Additional Criteria: The property value must be equal to or less than 316,772 euros, and the buyer should not be listed as a dependent in the family unit (IRS) in the year of acquisition.
  • Application Period: The exemption is valid for six months, starting from August 1, 2024, with practical effects beginning on October 1, 2024.
  • Special Cases: In joint acquisitions where one of the buyers is over 35 years old, the exemption applies proportionally, resulting in a 50% exemption.


Impact on the Real Estate Market

The implementation of this law is expected to have a significant impact:

  • Postponement of Purchase Decisions: Many young people have delayed buying properties, waiting for the law to come into effect.
  • Increase in Demand: A substantial increase in demand for properties by young people up to 35 years old is expected once the law is in force.
  • Short Application Period: Six months is a relatively short period to complete acquisition processes, so it is essential to start the purchasing process as soon as possible.
  • Eligible Properties: A strong demand is expected for properties valued up to 316,772 euros, which fall within the exemption criteria.


Practical Example of Savings

Consider the purchase of a property valued at 280,000 euros:

  • IMT: 8,400 euros
  • IS: 2,240 euros

With the new law, the savings would be approximately 10,640 euros. Additionally, the State provides a public guarantee for the mortgage, eliminating the need for a 10% down payment on the property’s value. For a property of 280,000 euros, this represents an additional saving of 28,000 euros, further increasing the immediate savings on the property acquisition.
