If you have lodged your application for the HomeBuilder or Building Bonus government grants, you might be wondering what next? Applications for the federal HomeBuilder grant are now closed, but you may need to upload more information through the Revenue WA Online Portal.
The WA State Government have created two videos that outline how to Add Supporting Documents and how to Complete or Update Application.
We’ve also created a list of FAQs. If your question isn’t here, get in touch with your Sales Consultant or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction Timeframe Extended
Instead of construction having to start within 6 months of signing your build contract, you now have 18 months for the Federal $25k HomeBuilder grant (although the WA $20k State Building Bonus currently remains at 12 months). This extension is due to the overwhelming response to the grants. The original forecast was for 27,000 applications across Australia and as of April there have been 121,363- including 17,752 in WA alone.
How to Lodge Your Application FAQs
- Everyone whose name is on or will be on the certificate of title for the property must be an applicant for the grant.
- Move Homes as your builder cannot apply for it (and either can your mortgage broker or bank).
- When you have a signed and accepted Build Contract, you can create an account on the Online Portal and lodge your information.
