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 in a super fund, company or trust.

Have you already got formal finance 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.

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.
