First-time homebuyer of a real estate unit – how to request an eligibility statement and obtain registration of title
When you buy real estate as your first home, you must – before registration of title or other registration – acquire a statement showing that you have not previously owned 50% or more of a home (an eligibility statement). You can get the statement only after making the contract.
Request a statement
Request an eligibility statement by calling our Telephone Service at 029 497 022 (standard call rates apply).
We will send you the statement by post.
Apply for registration
Register your ownership by applying for transfer of title to you or register your lease contract with the National Land Survey within 6 months after you have signed the deed of sale or other agreement.
Submit the statement to the National Land Survey when you apply for registration of title.
