Government $40-50k stimulus rebate on new builds

This release from Treasury indicates the $750K limit includes construction cost and land value.
I don't think this is fair at all, but alas what can we do?

That's a great point Sparkyf
Does this mean we need to get land valuation in order to apply for the grant? I suppose those who want to renovate would also have…

Government $40-50k stimulus rebate on new builds

To me these are contradictory statements in the article.
"building a new home worth less than $750,000" implies construction value only is considered
"property must be $750,000 or less" implies construction plus…

Can I clarify that you mean "Supernatural" range?
For completeness, I note the following ranges on the Caesarstone website:
Standard
Deluxe
Supernatural
Supernatural Ultra
Can I confirm that all options under the "Supernatural" range was available…

So you are saying driveway with Wisdom will be $25K?
Is this for a colour-on-top concrete driveway of

Am I able to request this prior to tender presentation so I can have it in the tender cost and know it straigtaway on presentation day?

I thankfully managed to settle yesterday, and the vendor waived penalty interest. So now up to finding a builder.
I hope the others are in a better place too
