The Family Home Guarantee (FHG) is part of the Home Guarantee Scheme, an Australian government initiative to support eligible single parents with dependents to purchase a home sooner.
You could be a home owner before you know it.
We know how hard it can be to save for a deposit as a single parent. That’s why we’ve signed on as an approved lender to the Australian Government’s home buyer initiative, the ‘Family Home Guarantee’.
The FHG provides eligible single parents with dependants the opportunity to build a new home or purchase an existing home with a deposit of 2 per cent, subject to the individual’s ability to service a home loan.
From 1 July 2023, 5,000 Family Home Guarantees will be made available per year until 30 June 2025
Eligible single parents or legal guardians with dependents looking to build a new home or purchase an existing home are able to apply for a loan to purchase an eligible property through a participating lender. The Family Home Guarantee is administered by Housing Australia on behalf of the Australian Government.
Housing Australia guarantees to a participating lender up to 18 per cent of the value of the property, provided the borrower has a minimum 2 per cent deposit, and is an eligible single parent or single legal guardian. This will enable single parents or legal guardians with dependants to enter, or re-enter, the housing market sooner.
