The following notes are for general guidance only and are subject to detailed provisions in the Act and regulations.
If You Are Selling Your Property
To meet Home Owner Grant eligibility requirements, you must still be the registered owner and be living in the property as your principal residence when you claim the grant.
If You Have Sold the Property
If you are no longer the registered owner of the property, you cannot claim a Home Owner Grant.
Vendor Paid Full Taxes Prior to the Sale of the Property
If the vendor paid the full taxes on the property prior to the sale, the new owner cannot claim a Home Owner Grant.
