First Home Buyers

With the introduction of the Great Start Grant, the eligibility requirements of the previous $7,000 first home owner grant have changed. It is only available if:

  • your contract to buy an established home (that is, a home previously lived in) is dated before 11 October 2012
  • your contract to buy or build a brand new home is dated before 12 September 2012
  • as an owner-builder, the foundations for your home were laid before 12 September 2012.


♦      Check if you are eligible for a transfer duty concession.  


♦      Get an idea of how much transfer duty you will pay.
