Who should pay the stamp duty of a house transaction?


I consider a market for housing.  Houseowners get randomly dissatisfied with their house, put it for up sale and look for a new one. Sellers and buyers are randomly matched at a rate that depends on the market tightness. I then ask how a switch of the liability to pay the stamp duty from buyer to seller affects market equilibrium. (work in progress).
