Wyatt Loan

Wyatt Loan

If you’re on a low income and finding it hard to save enough for the deposit or upfront costs to buy a home, HomeStart's Wyatt Loan could help by providing up to $12,000 to help you get started sooner.

How does it work?

The Wyatt Loan is a secondary loan taken out with a primary HomeStart loan, and offers an interest and repayment free period of 5 years. After this the borrower will need to repay the loan or, in appropriate circumstances, HomeStart may (at its absolute discretion) combine the Wyatt Loan balance with the HomeStart Home Loan, which may increase repayments.


You may be eligible if you've lived in South Australia for at least 5 years, and have a net household income of less than $47,500 p.a. (for applicants with dependants, maximum net household income is up to $57,500 p.a. based on the number of dependants). Applicants over the age of 50 with no dependants may also be eligible.

The Wyatt Loan is supported by the Wyatt Trust, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to reducing financial disadvantage, and improving the quality of life for South Australians.
