    Recommended Posts

    This is not something that should come as a surprise as it was announced recently that it would happen however the dates that this becomes effective from is today.

     

    Therefore as of today the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) for established houses has been reduced from $7,000 to $5,000, http://www.revenuesa.sa.gov.au/fhog/index.html.

     

    The other increased/new grants announced recently have not changed and information can be found here http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/money-finance/32547-mortgages-grants-buying-property-update.html

     

     

     

     

    Kind regards

    Thanks Andy, he went back to the broker and raised the topic and was told that they would be entitled to the $7k and were amending the contract to suit . . . .

     

    $2k saving, now just need to work out our commission :smile:
