07 Feb 5 JULY 2010 CHANGES TO FIRST HOME OWNERS GRANT
From 1 June 2010, there is a new $4,000 Regional First Home Owners Grant (RFHOG) for new homes in Regional Areas.
The Grant is an additional $4000 on top of the existing $7000 First Home Owners Grant, and is available to eligible first home buyers.
To be eligible for the $4000 regional bonus, the following must apply:
- You must be eligible for the $7000 First Home Owners Grant
- You must either build or buy a new home – the bonus does not apply to established homes
- The home must be located in Queensland regional areas – this basically means outside the South East Queensland area (see map attached ).
- The commencement date (i.e the contract date or for owner-builders, the date the foundations are laid) must be between 1 June 2010 and 30 June 2011 (inclusive). However, there is no set time that the building must be completed.
