In regard to registered land, once the buyer has become registered as proprietor, the stamping of the transfer or the pre-registration deeds no longer concern a subsequent buyer1.
In the case of unregistered land, a buyer is entitled to insist that all documents within the title are properly stamped at the expense of the seller. If deficiencies in stamp duty are found, the buyer or mortgagee should raise a requisition requiring the seller to remedy the deficiency at his own expense2.
The rates of stamp duty have varied from time to time so each document in the title should be checked
