How to complete your application
There are some important things you should do now to ensure you don’t miss out on the grant. Follow the steps below before 30 June 2025 to ensure your application is completed in time.
1. Contract type
Make sure you selected the correct contract type as part of your application. You can check this by reviewing the supporting documents page in the application.
It’s important that you selected the correct contract type because each one has different supporting document requirements.
- Buying a new home—for example, you signed a sales contract to buy an off-the-plan home (e.g. apartment or townhouse) or to buy a new home (recently built home that has never been sold or lived in)
- Building a new home—you entered into a comprehensive home building contract to build a new home on your land.
- Renovating a home—you entered into a contract to substantially renovate your home. This can be either to alter the existing dwelling or to demolish an existing home and build a new home on the land.
If you have selected the wrong contract type, you will need to upload the correct supporting documents for your contract type under Other.
2. Supporting documents
It is your responsibility to ensure that the correct supporting documents are provided by 30 June 2025. If you do not provide the documents by this date, you will not be paid the grant.
If the status of your application is ‘Documents required’, it means we’re waiting on supporting documents.
You can upload documents under Other. Detailed instructions on how to do this are on the ‘Supporting documents’ page in the application.
Note: You can only upload documents one at a time—that is, you can’t upload several documents at the same time.
