    The answer is no. As you have already used it and then got married she will not be use it.

    No.

    • All applicants and/or their spouse/de facto have not owned a residential property, jointly, separately or with some other person, in any State or Territory of Australia before July 2000.


    • All applicants and/or their spouse/de facto have not previously owned a residential property jointly, separately or with some other person in any State or Territory of Australia, and occupied that property for a continuous period of at least six months.

    As everyone has posted not at all.

    My wife was Aus born but I have stopped her from claiming the FHOG.

    We could of technically got her the FHOG if we didn't get married as we weren't living in the same house and had separate bank accounts and the house was (and still is) under my name.

    This means we could of got her to buy a house in her name and I could probably gift her money to buy it but there are risks with it and for the sake of 20-30k it wasn't worth it. Trust me I would love to have 30k but it would of meant putting our life on hold which isn't worth it.

    What you've just described is two people dating. One person buys a house and gets the FHOG. The other person is generous enough to help them with a deposit, which is a completely different thing.

    Understand was just saying how someone could get FHOG before getting married.

    However once in de facto or married it is game over and that isn't just for the FHOG ;)

    You may be eligible to part stamp duty concession if you are in QLD, but not FHOG.
