The government grant has made a big difference to many people in terms of whether they are actually in a position to purchase a new home.

Many young people however are unknowingly making themselves ineligible to receive the grant.

Financial planner Gabriel Nakhl, Director of explained it like this “The first of these mistakes is when parents go guarantor for their kids and the guarantor goes on the first home buyer’s title. Usually this means the children are not eligible for the grant.

“Secondly, when parents sell a house to their kids at a low price, when the kids buy a separate home they’ve already lost their grant on the first home.

“Finally, when a person is buying a first home with a partner and that partner has previously owned a property then usually the entitlement is lost”.

Mr Nakhl went on to say “financial planning is a highly regulated industry, so there are solid safeguards to protect clients. It’s very important to get the right advice.
