Deposit Power

Short Term Guarantee

Found the perfect property and need a deposit now?

When you have found the right property and need a deposit to secure the purchase, Deposit Power can help by providing a deposit guarantee.

A Deposit Power Guarantee is a substitute for the cash deposit required when purchasing a residential property and can be issued for all or part of the deposit required, up to 10% of the purchase price. This means when you are purchasing a residential property, you do not have to pay the deposit in cash when the contracts are signed, you simply pay the full purchase price at settlement.

So, as long as you have the funds available at settlement, with Deposit Power you are in the position to secure your perfect property and you don’t need to provide the deposit in cash.

Deposit Power offers short term guarantees to suit settlement terms of up to 6 months which are suitable for all types of residential properties including vacant land.

Helping you secure the property you want

Whether you are making an offer on a property or buying at auction, a Deposit Power Guarantee can be arranged quickly. Once you know you have the funds available to complete the purchase, you are ready to apply for a Deposit Power Guarantee. Before being issued with a deposit guarantee, you just need to demonstrate your ability to settle.

A Deposit Power Guarantee does not remove your obligation to pay the deposit, it just delays payment of the deposit amount until settlement.

Cost effective and convenient

Sometimes you may not have ready access to the cash deposit required to secure a property or may prefer a more cost effective alternative to using your own cash. This may happen when you:

  • Have sold your current home but funds are not yet available for your deposit
  • Are a first Home Buyer and won’t have access to the deposit amount until settlement
  • Are an investor and the loan funds are not available until settlement
  • Do not want to pay penalty costs for breaking a fixed term investment or selling shares
  • May want to attend one or more auctions without having to put aside funds for the deposit each time
