Long Term Deposit Guarantee FAQ

Once you’ve found the right property, secure the purchase without tying up your own cash for the deposit using a long term deposit guarantee.

Naritas offers long term guarantees to suit settlement terms from 6 to 48 months, and they are perfect for when you are buying properties that are off the plan, under construction, or vacant land with extended settlements.

How do I apply?

To apply, you will need to complete an application form and show us you are an existing property owner. As part of the application you  need to include the following:

  • Rate notice/s for residential property owned
  • Mortgage statements
  • Refunds & Rebates

Obtaining a refund 

Yes. The fee will be partially refunded if you return the unused, original Guarantee Certificate within 30 days of issue. An administration fee of $500.00 will be deducted and the balance will be refunded to you.

Fee rebate for properties that settle before a Guarantee expires

Yes. If a property settles more than six months before the expiry date of the guarantee, you can apply for a fee rebate, less an administrative fee.

The rebate is based on the date the Guarantee was issued and received. To qualify for a rebate you must return the original Guarantee at least 6 months prior to the expiry date with a covering letter from your or the vendor’s solicitor confirming the date that the property settled.
