MyBond, An Alternative to Rental Bonds

The bond you have with your rental journey is unbreakable. But not all relationships begin in marriage. People move for all sorts of reasons, such as moving closer to work, school, university, into a larger place to accommodate a growing family or start a new life. But, moving costs money, and these expenses quickly add up.

MyBond Is Disrupting Rental Bonds

The initial costs of moving with two weeks paid upfront as a deposit and another four weeks upfront for the rental bond is like highway robbery and pretty hefty on the piggy bank.

Getting off to a rocky start is inevitable, according to the annual WeMoney Financial Wellness Survey, with 60 % of Australians worrying about debt and 30 % living paycheck to paycheck. The survey also found many Australians are anxious about their financial future, and 20% don't have emergency savings.

Even if someone is working and earning a good wage, coming up with the rental bond, which is the most significant portion of the initial costs of moving to begin your rental journey, is as stressful as finding parking on King Street in peak hours. Let's face it. Rental in Australia isn't getting any easier. Too many of us are being frozen out of the market with the cost of moving and paying the rental bond upfront.

With over 8.3 million Australians (32% of the population) living in rental housing, there is a real need to disrupt this market and provide alternative funding solutions to pay rental bonds that run into the thousands on top of all the other moving expenses every time tenants move. The costs of the rental bond can be a significant barrier for people to move to ensure their living conditions fit their current life circumstances.
