If you have a formal approval or the funds to settle and are settling within 6 months?  Apply using our express application.  For all other deposit bonds, apply using our standard application. (Click on the links for each application to learn more.)

Do you have approval from the vendor?(Important)

Firstly before you apply for your deposit bond, we strongly recommend that you seek approval from the real estate agent and the vendor before you lodge and apply for a deposit bond.  This is just to ensure that you are transparent with them about wanting to use a deposit bond instead of a cash deposit to secure your property. Our deposit bonds are backed by QBE insurance which can provide certainty to vendors and real estate agents, that our bonds will be honoured.

Refund policy for off-the-plan:

Under Deposit Assure’s new policy, buyers will be eligible for a pro rata refund of their premium, where your purchase settles more than 6 months before the expiry date of the deposit bond, up to a maximum value of 18 months. To claim the refund, we must receive (a) written proof of the actual settlement; (b) the ‘original’ Deposit Bond; and (c) notice of your intent to apply for a refund within 45 days of the Settlement Date.
