Becoming a homeowner on Indigenous land

Legislative reforms introduced in 2008 enable eligible people to become homeowners on Indigenous land by acquiring a 99-year home ownership lease (sometimes called private residential lease).

Under these reforms, trustees of Indigenous land can grant 99-year home ownership leases over land they hold in trust, including any social housing dwellings located on that land.
The department has developed a series of fact sheets for councils, trustees and community members who wish to know more about acquiring a private residential lease.
The Department of Natural Resources and Mines (formerly known as the Department of Environment and Resource Management) provides further information about applying for a lease on Deed of Grant in trust land.
