Existing HomeBuilder recipients given two-year reprieve
The deadline for existing HomeBuilder applicants to submit supporting documentation has been officially extended to 30 June 2025.
The deadline was previously set at 30 April 2023, but, in March, the federal government proposed to extend it, subject to the agreement of states and territories – which has now been secured.
This extension applies only to people who had already received formal approval under the HomeBuilder scheme for off-the-plan purchases or renovations. Applicants do not need to do anything to access the extension – it will automatically apply.
The reason the government extended the deadline was to support people who had entered into financial commitments on the basis they’d received the grant, but, through no fault of their own, were unable to use it due to supply constraints and construction industry delays.
Applications for HomeBuilder closed in April 2021. States and territories administer the scheme on behalf of the federal government.
