FIRST HOME OWNER GRANT

  • first-home-buyers-ballarat

We touched on the exciting news back in March, the Victorian Government has announced that it intends to increase the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) from $10,000 to $20,000 for new homes built in regional Victoria, and yes this includes Ballarat for new homes valued up to $750,000. So what else do you need to know? The dates! The date you sign your contract to buy or build your new home is the key date. Settlement date is irrelevant.

The $20,000 FHOG will be applicable to:
– Contracts entered into from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2020 for the purchase of a new home in a regional area,
– Comprehensive home building contracts entered into from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2020 by the owner of land wholly in regional Victoria, or a person who on completion of the contract will be the owner of land wholly in regional Victoria, to have a home built on the land, and
– The building of a home wholly in regional Victoria if the building work commences between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2020 inclusive

If you are entitled to the FHOG but sign a contract for a first home in regional Victoria before 1 July 2017, you will not be eligible for the $20,000 payment. This is even if you settle on or after 1 July 2017. However, you will still be eligible for the $10,000 FHOG.
