The First Home Owner Grant Has Now Changed!
The first home owner grant of up to $3,000 for the purchase of established homes in Western Australia has been removed as of 3rd October 2015.
A first home owner who purchases an established home on or after the 3rd October 2015 will no longer be eligible for a grant. However, if the value of the property is $530,000 or less, they may still be eligible for the first home owner rate of duty.
The first home owner grant of $10,000 for new homes will remain unchanged.
A new application form ‘First Home Owner Grant Application and/or Pre-approval for the First Home Owner Rate of Duty’ is now available on the Department of Finance website.
