  • Buy or build a new home with a dutiable value of $575,000 or less

Are you eligible for a First Home Owner Grant?

Applying for the First Home Owner Grant


Talk to your broker
In most cases, your chosen lender will act as an agent for the Revenue Office. Your lender, together with your broker, will make sure you receive the grant if you are entitled to it.


Allow time for processing
Your Mortgage Choice broker will ensure that the First Home Owner Grant funds are available at settlement or at the first progress payment if you are building your home.


If you go direct...
If you apply directly to the Revenue Office, funds will not be available until after settlement or completion of the home if you are building.
