My DHOAS loan settlement/expected settlement date on the property referred to above is:
10. I declare that I, or I and my partner together own/will own a % interest in the property referred to in Question 9.
Please note: This question does not relate to your equity in the property. It relates to the parties on the Certificate of Title and of those parties what percentage you (or you and your partner) own. The eligible person must be one of the parties on the title for subsidy to be payable on the property/loan.

I understand that subsidy may cease if I stop occupying the property within the 12 months following the commencement of subsidy payments or the completion of building work.
If I am unable to occupy the home for the 12 month occupancy period, I understand that I must be approved a shorter period of occupancy to be eligible for continued subsidy payments. I also understand that I must apply for a reduced occupancy period within a reasonable period of time of vacating the DHOAS subsidised property.
Where I am performing building work, I understand that I have two years from the commencement of subsidy payments to complete the building work and move into the home.

Will the land or any building on the land be used for the purpose of carrying on a business, trade or profession?

(If you select 'Yes' you must be able to agree to both statements 1 and 2 to be eligible for the lump sum (unless you are applying as a surviving partner).
If you cannot confirm 'Yes' to both of these statements, you are not eligible for the lump sum.)
NOTE: If you have less than 12 months of entitlement remaining after you receive the lump sum payment, and subsequently transfer to the Reserves, your monthly DHOAS payments may cease.
*Declaration 1 above does not apply if you are applying for a lump sum as a surviving partner.
