Relevant interest

First home owner grant

A relevant interest may be described as an interest held by an individual in a property that grants them legal entitlement to, and a right to occupy, the home.

Generally, the interest holder is the registered owner of the property.

A declared relevant interest is where you are not the registered property owner, but have been granted the right to occupy a home built on the land.

Each of the following is declared to be a relevant interest:

  • a person’s right, given by a relative of the person, to occupy a home that is a detached dwelling built or to be built on land that is a part of land owned by the relative
  • a person’s right to occupy a mobile home under a relevant agreement
  • a manufactured home owner’s interest in a site agreement for a site on which a manufactured home is positioned.

When applying for the grant, you will need to provide supporting documents, such as the site agreement or contract declaring the applicant’s right to build on the land.
