The Family Home Guarantee (FHG) is for eligible single parents or eligible single legal guardians of at least one dependent, including those who are not first home buyers. A single parent under the Scheme is one who is either divorced or has never been married. Parents who are not divorced or are in a de facto relationship are ineligible.
The purpose of the Family Home Guarantee (FHG) is to support eligible single parents or single legal guardians of at least one dependent, on a pathway to home ownership. It does this by allowing NHFIC to issue up to 5,000 guarantees for each of the 2022-23, 2023-24 and 2024-25 financial years to eligible single parents with a deposit of between 2 and 20 per cent of the property value.
An eligible single parent or single legal guardian is not required to be a first home buyer but must not own property at the time of entering a loan under the Family Home Guarantee. The single parent or legal guardian must meet the eligible Australian Mutual Bank’s credit assessment criteria.
