Keystart's income limits will be permanently increased for singles, couples and families.

In July 2019 Keystart temporarily increased the maximum income limits for our Low Deposit Home Loan to help more Western Australians achieve affordable home ownership. The previous income limits were increased by $15,000 for singles and couples and by $20,000 for families. 

In addition to making the temporary income limits permanent,  the income limits for couples and families have been streamlined for Perth metro and regional areas (formally two different income limits). The income limit for couples and families will reflect the former income limits for families. 

The temporary increase to our income limits for borrowers was in place from July 2019 until June 2022, with reviews taking place in June 2020 and June 2021.
