Applying for the First Home Owner Grant should be done at the same time as applying for your home loan. Our affiliated brokers will help with the application. You can also request an application from the office of state revenue directly.
Each state has different rules and pays different grant amounts. The grant can vary from $5,000 in some states to $20,000 in others. In NSW, first home buyers purchasing a brand new first home will receive $10,000 first home owners grant up to a cost price of $750,000. States now require the property you purchase to be "brand new" to qualify for the first home owners grant.
If my partner & I are both eligible for the first home owners grant, do we get it twice?
No. When putting through an application, only one person in the application can be granted the FHOG. You also must make sure your partner hasn’t previously used or received the grant in Australia, as it may be denied.
