Do you meet these loan requirements?

Can I get a bond loan interest-free?
If you’ve just moved out of a rental and are waiting on your bond return, RentBond makes a great short-term loan option. With RentBond, you can borrow your funds for up to 21 days at no cost. So, once you have your bond refund and pay your RentBond loan in full within the first 21 days, you won’t pay any interest or other costs.
If you don’t pay it back in the first 21 days, your loan will have an agreed term with a minimum repayment amount, like a regular personal loan. If you can’t pay it back in 21 days, you can pay it back over the loan term. Interest, fees, and charges will apply.
