First Home Owner Grant

The first home owner grant is available to eligible applicants who are buying or building their first home. First home owners purchasing or building a new home may be eligible to receive a grant of up to $10,000 and first home owners who purchased an established home on or before 2 October 2015 may be eligible for a grant of up to $3,000. As from 3 October 2015 the first home owner grant applies to new homes only. There are no income or assets tests to qualify for the first home owner grant, however the total value of the home must not exceed $750,000 if the property is south of the 26th parallel, or $1,000,000 if north of the 26th parallel. First home owners buying an established home up to the value of $530,000 will still be able to apply for the concessional first home owner rate of duty.
