  • You must be an Australian Citizen;
  • You must enter a building contract between the 4th of June 2020 and 31st December 2020;
  • You must build a home as your principle place of residence where the house and land does not exceed the value of $750,000.00;
  • You substantially renovate your existing principle place of residence and the renovation contract is between the value of $150,000.00 and $750,000.000;
