Applying for first home benefits
Applying for FHOGS
You can apply for the First Home Owner Grant through your approved agent or OSR. Applications lodged with approved agents will have the grant available for settlement or for the first draw down on contracts to build.
Applications can only be lodged with OSR after completion and you are registered on title (if you are purchasing under a 'Terms Contract' please contact OSR for lodgement requirements).
Applications must be lodged within 12 months of completion or settlement of your home.
Applying for First Home Plus
Submit your First Home Plus application together with your proof of identity documents at the same time you lodge your Agreement for Sale/Transfer for stamping by OSR.
Your agent (solicitor, conveyancer, etc) can help you to lodge your application and documents with OSR for stamping or they can lodge your application and apply for stamping electronically through a Client Service Provider.
You must have already exchanged contracts to purchase your first home or vacant land.
If you are applying for a concession under First Home Plus, you should apply within three months from the date of the sale agreement, otherwise you may be subject to interest charges. (Note: this does not apply to 'off-the-plan' purchases.)
