What is a deposit bond by Deposit Assure?


When buying a property or land, you have to provide a cash deposit, normally up to 10% of the purchase price. This deposit is used to guarantee the commitment of the buyer to the contract of sale.
If you are looking to buy, but do not have ready or convenient access to the 10% cash deposit required, a deposit bond may be the solution you are looking for.
There are many reasons why you could benefit from a deposit bond:
Whatever the reason deposit bonds are a smart and viable alternative that can make it easier for you to purchase property or land when you do not have ready access to the 10% cash deposit required.

We do not transfer any funds to the vendor, we are only providing a guarantee for the deposit amount which you will pay at the time of Settlement.

When Settlement takes place the deposit bond expires and is no longer valid.

The vendors legal representative who would be holding your deposit bond can choose to dispose of the deposit bond or file it away.

If you have obtained a long term deposit bond, and there is still greater than 6 months remaining on your bond, you can send the original deposit bond to Deposit Assure to see if you are eligible for a pro rata refund.*conditions apply
