Policing conditions of Scheme

Defence has responsibility for policing the conditions of DHOAS, and has established processes - including working with DVA and the authorised Home Loan Providers - to ensure members comply with the legislation.

Remember it is your responsibility to ensure you understand and comply with the conditions of receiving the subsidy. 

Possible consequences of not complying with the conditions include:

  • Cessation of subsidy payments
  • Repayment of subsidy payments received, including from the sale of the property or an increase in the home loan
  • Being barred from future access to the Scheme 
  • Disciplinary action or criminal prosecution
