If I apply for RentBond will it show on my credit file?
No. If you apply for RentBond and our bond loan partner Principal Finance this will not appear on your credit file.
There is a credit assessment used as part of the application process, however this is not a credit check, and will not result in a notation on your credit file.
If you apply for a loan through our personal loans partner Fair Go Finance, this can result in a credit check, and this being recorded on your credit history.
How long does it take to get approved?
Once you’ve been accepted for a rental property, complete our easy online application and we will immediately confirm your acceptance and deduct your first instalment. We then provide payment of the bond to your Property Manager or Government Bond authority.
What happens once my application is accepted?
Once your application has been submitted with your new property address, you will be asked to read and accept your contract online and provide repayment details. Your bond will then be processed either the same day or the next business day, paid directly to your Property Manager.
How long does it take for the bond to be paid?
