Property purchase & Deposit Bond
When you agreed to a property purchase, you are required to put a deposit between signing the contract of sale and settlement, to guarantee the commitment of a buyer to the contract of sale.
Buying and selling property at the same time can be tricky, especially when your funds are tied up.
A deposit bond is a substitute for the cash deposit used to guarantee the commitment of a buyer to the contract of sale.
A key advantage of deposit bonds is that there’s no need for cash upfront, which means property buyers can keep their cash until settlement occurs.
The bonds are underwritten by QBE Insurance, one of the most respected and recognised insurance companies in Australia. The process is relatively simple and quick, for a fee the bond provider can issue a bond so long as the buyer proves they will have the funds to complete their purchase at settlement,
