Moving to a new rental in South Australia? If you need bond assistance to cover your moving costs, apply for a RentBond loan.
RentBond, available through rent.com.au, is a rental bond loan that can cover the cost of your rental bond, rent in advance and other moving costs.
RentBond loans are simple and your application is done online. This means that no matter where you are in South Australia, you can apply from the comfort of your own home.
How do I know if I’m eligible for a rental bond loan?
Applying for RentBond is easy. Paying your rental bond in smaller, monthly instalments lets you save money for more important things, like enjoying your new home!
Your RentBond application will be assessed on a range of factors, including your income, your ability to repay the loan and your past credit history.
Do you meet these loan requirements?
- Be 18 years of age or older and living in Australia
- Have not entered into bankruptcy or a part 9 agreement within the last 12 months
- Be willing to provide your bank statements online. (Please note, bank statements can only be submitted via our secure online service).
Can I get a bond loan interest-free?
If you’ve rented in South Australia before, you may have encountered difficulty trying to synchronise paying your new bond while waiting for the return of your old bond. It’s a common issue for many renters, and it can also place a lot of pressure on the landlord/property manager. In most cases, people need to pay their new bond before they have completed the exit process from their last property.
Rent.com.au’s RentBond 21-day interest-free period is the perfect solution. You can secure your new place and pay the loan back when your bond is returned – with no interest or fees attached.
Put simply, if you pay your RentBond loan in full within the first 21 days, you won’t pay any interest or other costs. 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.
