Need to move to a new house but don’t have the money to pay upfront? Here are 3 other ways to help get your rental bond

If you find you’re a little short on your rental bond there are a few other options that allow you to receive the funds to pay the bond and payback in instalments, which allows you to get into your perfect home and not have to worry about the large sum. Here are some of the best ways to receive help for this throughout Australia.

Government Grant

You can apply for a Bond Loan or Rental Grant via your states Government website. These are interest-free and fee-free loans for when you move into private rental accommodation. There are a few eligibility requirements you need to meet to be able to apply for this which include:

  • You must be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident or on a temporary bridging visa
  • You do not own or part-own a residential property, caravan, mobile home or live onboard a boat
  • You have less than $2500 in cash or savings among all Bond loan applicants.
  • The full list of eligibility requirements is available through government websites.

Residential Tenancies Authority

You may be eligible to pay your bond payment in instalments over time through the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA). If the lessor/agent agrees to do this, you are able to make part-payments via the RTA Bond Lodgement web service until the amount is paid in full. You will need to check with your agent if this is available for you and what eligibility requirements you may need to meet. 

Easy BondPay

Easy BondPay is a facility which makes the bond payment process a breeze! They provide quick and easy finance which you can pay back over 3 or 6 months. The application is fast and convenient, once you have filled this out, they do the rest for you! They will be in contact with your Property Manager to confirm the details and conduct some information checks, if approved you will receive a contract to review and sign and they will then pay your full bond directly to your Property Manager and that’s it! Then you just need to pay back the loan in the instalments set in your contract.


Here's a Nifty fact!

It is not a legal requirement for a bond to be taken for a rental, so you can ask a landlord if this is an option.
