After a change of legal representative, can the new solicitor firm use the e-stamping service for a subsequent assignment or to pay the deferred duty?
No. For security reasons, all electronic stamping applications for the same transaction have to be made by the same applicant. If there is a change of legal representative, please use paper application for subsequent stamping.
Can I save my currently inputted data without submission?
Yes, for stamping request involving agreement, assignment and tenancy agreement, you may choose to save your input data before submission by using the "Save and Quit" button. You may save up to 60 partially completed records and each of these records can be stored in the system for a period of 30 days. Please note that a temporarily saved record will be removed from the database once it is retrieved. If you wish to save the retrieved record before submission, please click the "Save and Quit" button.
How do I input a sub-sale case of a residential property?
For each sub-sale agreement, please submit an “Initial Stamping” application. After stamping all the related agreements, you may submit a “Subsequent Assignment” application to pay the fixed duty for the assignment and information of the first and last preceding agreements has to be inputted.
How do I input the consideration amount in a case selling only 50% of the interest of property?
Input the consideration for this 50% interest only. In case the value of the whole property is stated in the instrument and you do not want the stamp certificate to show only 50% of the amount, please use the conventional stamping mode.
