    Hi Bling,

    If your wife claimed the FHOG when she bought your PPOR in her name i'm pretty sure you can not claim the grant. I've included a link for the eligibility requirements in NSW for you to look at, and I'd say they're the same in every state or at least pretty close.

    Eligibility - NSW Office of State Revenue

    Cheers,
    Paul

    You would of had to buy a house in your name before you married, or at least have signed a contract to buy before. Don't like your chances :p :mad:
