As foreign non-residents, they can seek approval to purchase vacant land or a new dwelling.

They will not be permitted to purchase any interest in an established (second-hand) dwelling.

Definition of a new dwelling

A dwelling that has not been previously sold by the developer and has not been previously occupied (such as, by tenants) for more than 12 months.

New dwellings include those that are part of extensively refurbished buildings where the building’s use has undergone a change from non-residential (for example, office or warehouse) to residential. It does not include established residential real estate that has been refurbished or renovated.


Under this general principle, Foreign Buyers are permitted to purchase the following categories of residential real estate in Australia:

(i) A new residential high rise apartment / townhouse / stand alone house where the property has not been previously sold (in other words the buyer is purchasing the property from the original developer/builder) and the property has not been rented out for a period of not more than twelve (12) months.
