The First Home Owner Grant or FHOG (New Homes) scheme was established to help eligible first homeowners to purchase a new home or to build their home. Buyers must be aware that they are still entitled to pay Stamp duty, Land Tax and Emergency Services Levy. RevenueSA administers the first homeowner grant along with a number of other grants and concessions for new homebuyers. You may be eligible for: the Off-the-plan Stamp Duty Concession.

This concession is in addition to the FHOG.
  • If eligible, no stamp duty will be payable where the apartment has a market value of $500 000 or less. Where an apartment purchased has a market value greater than $500 000, you will be entitled to a stamp duty concession of $21 330. A calculator is available to determine the stamp duty payable and concession that could be applicable.
