How can I participate in the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme?
First, you will need to apply for the scheme by completing the application directly with the lenders who are in the scheme. There are 27 lenders you can choose from and it is a must to apply to them, not the Australian Government, nor anyone else.
There are different eligibility criteria for someone applying as ‘single’ or as a ‘couple’ , so you should decide which of these you are applying with. If there is a need to change your application, you can withdraw your original application and provide a new one. However, this may give you a disadvantage as you may lose you your place in the application process.
