The Interior Ministry announced that the temporary measure would apply to applicants to the Land Registry between 1 April and 31 August 2014.
First time buyers of a new property, which is not yet registered, pay only 1 percent of valuation, while first-time buyer of a resale property will pay 3 percent.
