First home owners scheme

First Home Owners








All Australian States and Territories assist first home buyers through the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG).

To be eligible, applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents, who are buying or building their first home in Australia.  To be considered eligible, a home must be located in Australia and must be a new or established house, home unit, flat or other type of self-contained fixed dwelling that lawfully can be used as a place of residence.

The grants are not means tested and are tax free.

More details on the First Home Owners grants, including eligibility, can be found at www.firsthome.gov.au
