On 17 April 2021, the Australian Government announced it would extend the construction commencement requirement from six months to 18 months for all applications (i.e. for all contracts signed 4 June 2020-31 March 2021 inclusive).

If you have been denied the grant due to not meeting the 6-month construction commencement requirement you should, as soon as possible, lodge an objection at so that your application can be reviewed. When you lodge your objection, please provide the following details: your name, the property address, your application code, the date your application was rejected and the reasons it was rejected, and any other relevant information.

While applications for the HomeBuilder Grant closed on 14 April 2021, if you have already lodged your application via our online portal:

  • Continue uploading supporting documents as they become available.
  • Carefully read the supporting document checklist in the online portal, checking that you have uploaded all the required documents. This will ensure that your application is processed as smoothly as possible, without the need to get back to you in relation to missing or incomplete documents.
