APPLYING FOR THE FIRST HOME OWNER GRANT

The First Home Owners’ Grant is a state government initiative to help first home owners to get their new first home sooner.

If your contract is dated 1 July 2018 or later, you can get $15,000 towards buying or building your new house, unit or townhouse (valued at less than $750,000). 

The grant is paid per new home; not to each of the applicants for the same home. 

The grant amount has varied since it was first introduced in 2000.

Contracts dated earlier than 1 July 2018 may still be eligible for a grant. You can buy off the plan or choose to build yourself.

To be eligible for the grant:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident (or applying with someone who is).
  • You or your spouse must not have previously owned property in Australia that you lived in. You must be buying or building a brand new home.
  • The value of the home including the land is less than $750,000.
  • You must move into the new home as your principal place of residence within 1 year of the completed transaction and live there continuously for 6 months.
