A Deposit Bond (also known as a Deposit Guarantee) is a quick, easy and low cost alternative to a cash deposit when buying property. It acts as a substitute for the cash deposit required by the purchaser and can be issued for all or part of the deposit amount, from 1% up to 10% of the purchase price.
Commonly accepted nationwide, Deposit Bonds are a great way for securing the deposit on your new home or investment property.
A Deposit Bond can be used to purchase both residential and commercial property. A Deposit Bond is a useful tool for investors who want to defer the payment of their cash deposit, particularly when your LVR is between 70% to 100%.
A Deposit Bond can be used as a substitute for your cash deposit when purchasing a new home including registered or unregistered land packages.
Commercial or business properties such as units, retail, office, storage space, commercially zoned vacant land, individual factory units or general business premises can be bought using a Deposit Bond.
Self-Managed Super Funds can use Deposit Bonds to purchase investment property.
