From 1 April 2015 the new Government initiative for first home buyers – the KiwiSaver HomeStart grant – came into effect.
The KiwiSaver HomeStart Grant can help you if who are looking to purchase your first home.
Like the KiwiSaver first-home deposit subsidy which it replaces, the KiwiSaver HomeStart grant provides eligible first-home buyers with a grant of up to $5,000 for individuals and up to $10,000 for couples to put towards the purchase of an existing or older home.
In addition, the new KiwiSaver HomeStart grant also provides eligible first-home buyers with a grant of up to $10,000 for individuals and up to $20,000 for couples to help with the costs of purchasing a brand new home.
Take a look at the Housing New Zealand website at www.kiwisaver-homestart.co.nz to find out more about how the KiwiSaver HomeStart grant works and some answers to some of the more technical questions you may have about the product.
