The First Home Owners Grant is a national scheme funded by the States and Territories and administered under their own legislation. The grants differ from State to State, and can take the form of a discounted or reduced property transfer fee, and maybe a one off tax-free payment to first home buyers in Australia, who satisfy the eligibility criteria. To be eligible, you must be at least 18, you or other applicants may not be a company or trust, at least one of the applicants must be a permanent Australian resident, and you must occupy the residence for 6 months beginning in the first 12 months of settlement.
