Check your eligibility before considering a purchase if you are relying on the First Home Buyer Grant. There is an eligibility criteria on the GOV site below but it is wise to see your conveyancer or broker to make sure you are eligible.
Note: From 24 May 2016 the First Home Owner Discount may be available for first home buyers who enter into a contract to purchase an established home.
Contrary to some recent assertions, the Territory Revenue Office can confirm that there are no plans to change or abolish the $26 000 first home owner grant currently available on the purchase or construction of a new home. If you have any queries in relation to the grant, please feel free to contact the Territory Revenue Office on 1300 305 353 or by email to [email protected].

Caravan and Transportable Homes
If I purchase a transportable home to erect on a vacant block of land and use it as my principal place of residence, will I be eligible for the FHOG?
Yes, provided the home is affixed to the land and may lawfully be used as a place of residence. The transaction is deemed to commence on the date the contract to purchase the transportable home is made and is completed when the transportable home is ready for occupation as a place of residence.
Will I be eligible for the FHOG if I intend to purchase and live in a caravan?
No. As a caravan is not affixed to land, you will not be eligible for the FHOG.
