A man has hilariously interrupted the Australian Prime Minister's press conference to tell everyone to get off his lawn.
Scott Morrison was unveiling his government's new funding package to help people renovate their homes when a property owner came out to warn people about his new grass.
"Can everyone get off the grass, please?" the man can be heard saying. "I've just re-seeded that."
Mr Morrison told the news crews that have parked themselves on the lawn to promptly move forward so that the guy doesn't have to do it all over again.
The Prime Minister gave the bloke a big thumbs up and hopes that no grass was hurt in the making of this press conference. The brilliant encounter happened on live television, meaning everything was captured in real-time.
If you want to know more about the government's renovation announcement then look no further.
The HomeBuilder scheme will give eligible Aussies $25,000 to renovate their homes, which is aimed at kickstarting the trades industry following the coronavirus pandemic.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: "If you've been putting off that renovation or new build, the extra $25,000 we're putting on the table along with record low interest rates means now's the time to get started.
"This investment isn't just about helping Australians bring their dream home to life, it's about creating jobs and helping support the more than one million workers in the sector including builders, painters, plumbers and electricians across the country."
It's open to people earning less than $125,000 a year, or $200,000 per couple. The money can be used to build a new home valued up to $750,000 including land. Alternatively, it can be used for renovations to existing properties where the renovation contract is between $150,000 and $750,000 and the property's current value does not exceed $1.5 million. The property must be your principal place of residence.
The funding grant can only be used to 'improve the accessibility, safety and liveability of the dwelling'. It rules out additions to the property such as swimming pools, tennis courts, outdoor spas and saunas, sheds or garages. It also can't be used on an investment property.
The scheme is expected to directly employ around 140,000 construction jobs, however in its entirety it could attract upwards of a million workers, from architects to manufacturers and engineers.
To get access to the payment, the person applying needs to pay a licensed builder the first instalment for the work and then, and only then, can you apply to your relevant state or territory authority for the $25,000.
Officials will comb through the application and once everything is sorted and the criteria is met, you'll get the money into your account.
