What about if I transfer to my spouse and there is no mortgage?

This is a straight forward transaction. If transferring to a spouse or de-facto partner then no stamp duty is payable and so transfer documents are prepared and lodged at the Land Titles Office along with the original Title so a new Title can be issued.

How long does it take?

At time of writing, with no bank involved and no stamp duty to be paid it can take around one to two weeks. With a bank involved and stamp duty payable anywhere upwards of four to seven weeks.
