First Home Owner Grant

As a basic rule, you may be eligible for a first home buyer grant:

  • If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Building your first home in Australia, with the intention of occupying it as your principle place of residence within 12 months of the settlement and living in it continuously for at least 6 months.
  • If you are buying the property in conjunction with others, they must also meet the first home criteria for the grant to be applicable.
