FHOG is a grant given from the State Government to help and encourage first home owners to buy or build a residential property to use as their principal place of residence. For new or built homes, you can be currently given up to a $10,000 grant with stamp duty waived. For established homes, there is no longer any fee assistance. However, stamp duty will still be waived up to a purchase price of $430,000 and pro rata up to $530,000.

– Never owned a home before and are not married/ de facto with someone that has owned a home/ received FHOG in the past and;
