Bond loan scheme policy and procedures (word)

Please note: As of 7 July 2018 cheques and lodgment forms for department bond loans have been replaced with Bond loan vouchers. The voucher acts as a lodgment form and payment. It is to be used by the agent or landlord to lodge the bond with the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority. The Bond loan scheme manual will be updated shortly to reflect this.

The department's Bond Loan Scheme aims to assist low-income people who are capable of finding accommodation in the private rental market but have difficulty meeting the upfront costs associated with accessing private rental accommodation. The policy ensures that assistance is provided to households in the private rental market who have no other financial options.
