Even though the property has been NRAS approved by the government it doesn’t become an actual NRAS property until the tenant moves in. Most of these properties available under NRAS are “off the plan” and are yet to be built.

At all time your are in control of the process and you own the property. Because you own the property you can sell it at with or without the NRAS attached to it and you can choose to opt out of the NRAS Scheme at any time.

When you meet with our consultants we talk you through the process and make sure you fully understand your options. The only thing you have to decide on is which property you wish to buy.


If you need assistance with finance we can also assess your eligibility and recommend the most suitable loan products for your situation.

Once you have decided on a property a $1000 refundable holding deposit is then transferred into the vendor solicitor's trust account

Contracts are drawn by vendor's solicitor then sent to you. Contracts have a 21 day finance clause. Settlement usually occurs 14 days after unconditional on finance.
