Hi, team. I have questions about a registered lease. I got a lease with homeowners. I must present this as proof of my proof of address to the Passport Office. Is this French-language rental agreement valid? how to distinguish between the franc and the registered lease? An Instant Stamp Service on GovHK (www.gov.hk/etax) To print an e-Stamp paper rental contract, you must first buy e-stamp paper from the allocated centres in your city (it`s true, you can`t buy them online from SHCIL or their distributors!). Once you have the E-Stamp paper, write/print your rental budget, after which the executors, namely the tenant and the landlord, must place their signatures in specific locations with the signatures of two witnesses.

Stamp stamp certificates issued by Stamp Revenue`s collector have the same legal status as conventional instrument stamps. To verify the authenticity of the certificates, see www.gov.hk/estamping. Another example: if the lease term were 18 months instead of 24 months, the stamp duty payable would be $216, as shown below. For landlords, it is a common concern to ask whether their tenants have paid their stamp duty in the tenancy agreement. Freight no, there is a way to find out if it is on the IRAS website.

The party that is required to pay stamp duty is generally indicated in the agreements. For example, if you are renting a property, the rental agreement should indicate who should pay stamp duty.
