First Home Owners Grant

The First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) is paid by the State Government to eligible first home owners.

The payment is made only after an application has been submitted to and approved by RevenueSA or a financial institution authorised by RevenueSA to process applications.

FHOG applies to the purchase or construction of a residential property, including a house, flat, unit, townhouse or apartment that meets local planning standards anywhere in South Australia. FHOG currently applies to both new and established homes, but will cease for established homes from 1 July 2014.

The residential property must be occupied as each applicants principal place of residence property for a continuous period of at least six months commencing within 12 months of date of settlement for contracts to purchase, or the date construction is completed for owner builders or contracts to build.
