hey all, i have been looking to purchase a PPOR in order to get the FHOG, although after the 6 months i wish to convert the property into an IP. i vaguely read somewhere that in certain circumstances the 6 month requirement can be reduced, and therefore converted into an investment property sooner. is this true? also i have found some good buys interstate but this would mean that i would not qualify for the FHOG because i would not be able to move into the PPOR? furthermore i have been receiving centrelink youth allowance payments (i am a student). does purchasing a first home sacrifice my payments or increase them? is there any way around my dilemma? any help will be much appreciated.
