 Property PriceStamp Duty FeeFirst RM100,000  1%RM100,001- RM500,0002%RM500,001 – RM1,000,0003%Above RM1,000,000 4%
So, imagine that you are going to buy a new property at a purchase price of RM300,000.
The stamp duty fee for the first RM100,000 will be (100,000*1%) = RM1,000
The stamp duty fee for the remaining amount will be ((300,000-100,001)*2%) = RM4,000.

This means that for a property at a purchase price of RM300,000 the stamp duty will be RM5,000.
