Tribunal widens eligibility for first home buyer grant

First home buyers who jointly purchase a property with a private company are still eligible for the state government’s First Home Owners Grant, in light of a ruling by the State Administrative Tribunal last Tuesday.

The tribunal ruled in favour of Tuart Hill home buyer Laura Benzion’s application for the $7,000 grant, despite the fact that her property was purchased jointly with Perth-based company Australian Property Investment Exchange Pty Ltd.

The Commissioner of State Revenue had previously ruled that the application was invalid as the FHOG Act stipulates that all interested parties must apply for the grant and any applicant must be a “natural person”, as opposed to a company. However, the SAT upheld Ms Benzion’s objection that APIE had no right to occupy the property under their agreement and should therefore not be defined as an interested party.
