Get started with our express application
Our Express Application is the most popular way to obtain a deposit bond.
Use it when the following conditions apply:
✓ Purchasing as an individual
✓ Settlement under 6 months
✓ Proof of funds to complete purchase: either finance approval (must be unconditional or at a minimum subject to a valuation only) or other proof of funds like a sale contract.
Our Express Application cannot be used if any one of the following conditions apply:
✓ Settlement over 6 months
✓ Purchasing off the plan
✓ Purchasing through a super fund, company or trust
If any of the above applies to you, simply use our Standard Application.
What does it cost?
We simply take a small premium as a fee before the deposit bond is issued. The deposit bond premium is calculated based on the deposit amount required and the term of the guarantee. Generally, the longer the deposit bond guarantee term, the more the premium costs.

Our application process is quick and easy.
Before you start, you will need:
- ✓ Method of payment. You will be prompted to make a payment to Deposit Assure for the premium amount. This fee must be paid in order to secure your deposit bond.
Copies of supporting documents:
- ✓ Contract of Sale (purchaser/vendor/property details and signature page only) n.b if there are any there are any special conditions we will need these too.
- ✓ Passport or driver’s license for each applicant
- ✓ Unconditional finance approval or at minimum conditional approval subject to valuation only. n.b minor ‘house-keeping’ conditions are acceptable.
