Standard Application

Get started with our standard application

Our Standard Application makes it easy to get the final piece of the puzzle and secure a property.

Use our Standard Application when any one of the following conditions apply:

✓ Settlement on your property is more than 6 months

✓ Purchasing off the plan

✓ Purchasing at auction

✓ Purchasing in a super fund, company or trust.

Have you already got formal financial approval and a settlement of 6 months or less? Our Express Application is for you. Get started today or learn more.

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.
