Family with 5 kids bought a house

Are you living in an AHO property and looking to buy your home?

Contact AHO now to check your eligibility.

The Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO) and Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) are working in partnership to enable AHO tenants to buy their homes. If this is your first purchase, the AHO will provide a grant of up to $2,500 for legal costs and a property valuation. You will also be exempt from State Government Stamp Duty.

How do I get started?

Step One: Contact the AHO head office to check eligibility.

Step Two: You will be referred to IBA to complete an expression of interest form.

Step Three: If approved by AHO and IBA our team will assist you through the process of buying your home.

All homes must be purchased at market value. What does this mean? The market value will depend on recent sales of similar properties in your area. Once the Expression of Interest form is complete, IBA will send an independent assessor to the property to determine market value.

Please note: This is a general guide only for the IBA/AHO Home Purchase Scheme and not all AHO properties are available for sale.
