No stamp duty is paid only for the transfer of the family home between spouses. Whenever there is a transaction involving other family members the State Revenue Office requires you to obtain a valuation from a valuer to determine the market value of the property. The stamp duty paid on the property transfer will be based on the valuation of market value, not the listed contract price or gift.
Stamp duty is payable on the settlement day of the property purchase. Your conveyancing solicitor should have ensured your funds were ready and will manage the payment process.
