What is bond assistance?

Bond assistance is money provided from a lender to a borrower, to help pay the bond on a rental property.

FAQs about MoneyMe Personal Loans

What is a personal loan?

Personal loans from credit providers are contracts where you agree to borrow money from the credit provider for personal purposes, such as a car or student finance. Interest is charged on the loan, plus fees and charges are payable (such as ongoing fees like account keeping fees). Your establishment fee is often rolled into your total loan amount and does not constitute as a separate payment fee upon approval or acceptance of your loan contract.

A personal loan can provide you with access to money you want or need now, so that you can do things like:

  • take advantage of a great offer on a new asset with a great interest rate car loan and flexible terms

  • put down a deposit for an upcoming life event and enjoy regular, cashflow friendly repayments

  • pay for an unexpected emergency or bills (like mechanical works and repairs on your car) and enjoy the security of knowing that you can cover your costs comfortably with a range of loan terms, including short terms of just 12 months

  • move rental properties (and pay your upfront costs like professional movers and your bond)

  • travel to all of the places you have always wanted to go comfortably and with the security of knowing that you can pay off your epic adventure with manageable repayment terms

MoneyMe offers personal loans ranging from $2,100 to $50,000, with flexible repayments and no early repayment fees or exit fee. Our interest rate ranges are highly competitive. Check out our comparison rate examples to compare personal loans.

Larger loan amounts can help with purchases like a new car, a wedding, renovations, or education expenses like tuition fees and even for the cost of regular school terms.

Larger loan amounts may have a longer loan term, so that you have more time to repay the loan, but this also means that there is more interest to pay over the life of the loan. Shorter loan terms will mean higher repayment amounts but less interest payable over the life of the loan. Shorter terms often have a higher interest rate too. Don't forget that you can reduce the amount of interest that you pay on a new loan for a car or other large purchase by paying out your loan amount ahead of time.

Even if you have a poor history with credit, you may be approved for a personal loan with MoneyMe.

What is the difference between a secured and unsecured personal loan?

Generally speaking, a secured personal loan is a personal loan that is secured by some form of collateral that you own—such as a home or a car—that your lender has the right to sell in the event that you default on the loan. The cost of the secured asset helps the lender to recoup any lost earnings from interest payments and often a lender adjusts their interest rate to reflect the slightly lower credit risk.

On the other hand, an unsecured personal loan is not secured by any collateral. While this might mean that you pay a slightly higher interest rate, it also means that your loan amount is not secured to any asset that you own. Paying a slightly higher interest rate could give you more flexibility.

When you take out a new lending product with MoneyMe, you also enjoy fee waivers like no early exit fees applied when you choose to close out your existing loan balance with us ahead of schedule. Paying out your loan balance means that you can avoid paying some of the interest charged on your loan.

You also enjoy a competitive interest rate and comparison rates on a fixed rate loan options. A fixed rate loan remains the same throughout the term of your finance whereas the cost of lending products offering a variable interest rate may fluctuate. Refer to our comparison rate to ensure that you are getting the lowest cost finance and rate available.

How do I apply for a MoneyMe personal loan?

Simply apply through our website or the MoneyMe app available in App Store and Google Play. Our application process is entirely online, and can be completed in minutes, with no face-to-face interactions and lengthy paperwork! Enjoy competitive interest rates and low fees across all of our finance options.

How soon can you get the outcome of your MoneyMe personal loan application?

Many borrowers who apply during business hours (being 8am to 9pm Mondays to Fridays and 9am to 9pm on weekends) receive the outcome of their application on the same day. If you apply outside of business hours, or your financial situation is more complex, it may take a little longer.

If you are approved, we send your lending offer immediately which shows you what rate of interest you will be charged on your loan as well as the total cost of your loan over your nominated term. You can sign this offer online and once received, we transfer you the money you need to buy your new car, book a holiday or straighten out your finances immediately.

The time it will take for you to receive your new cash funds depends on a range of factors including which financial institution your bank account is held with.

What is a comparison rate?

Comparison rates are designed to help customers understand the true cost of a loan, because the comparison rate actually includes fees as well as the interest rate. All finance comes with a range of fees beyond just the interest rate offered. When you receive a finance offer from MoneyMe, you can clearly check the comparison rate or total cost of your loan, including both the interest rate charged as well as any other applicable fees.

What is refinancing?

Refinancing refers to taking out an entirely new loan, and using the loan funds to pay off an existing loan.

It is typically done to obtain lower interest rates and/or better loan terms. Lower interest rates mean lower payable interest over the term of the loan. Refinancing and switching to a lender with lower interest and lower general fees can help you reduce the total interest you pay over the term of your loan. It's worth periodically checking that you really are getting the best interest rate that you can. Interest rate differences of even just 1% or 2% could add up on the loan term so saving yourself that extra 1% or 2% in interest now could mean big long term savings.

What fees are associated with MoneyMe personal loans?

We charge an establishment fee and a monthly fee, in addition to an interest rate starting from 6.25% p.a. Other fees and charges may apply if you don’t make your scheduled loan repayments.

How are MoneyMe’s interest rates determined?

We set interest rates primarily according to the borrower’s credit report. Other factors which can impact the interest rate that you receive includes your total income, debt obligations, and living expenses. Ensuring that your credit report is as good as it possibly can is a quick and easy way of giving yourself the best chance for securing the lowest possible interest rate offered.

What is an early repayment fee?

Early repayment fees are generally fees that are payable by borrowers if a loan is repaid ahead of schedule. Paying your loan ahead of time reduces the amount of interest that you pay.

We don’t charge early repayment or early exit fees if you decide to make an early repayment for your personal loan.

Can you make a redraw on your MoneyMe personal loan?

We don’t offer redraws on personal loans, which means the amount of the loan you have repaid won't be available for use again.

What is your credit history?

The term ‘credit history’ is usually used to describe how you have managed your credit in the past.

It also sometimes shows how long loan accounts have been open, the number of credit enquiries on your credit file, and whether you are making your loan repayments on time. Past or current loans and credit cards generally form part of your credit file and history. Your credit report will impact the kind of interest rate you are offered should you be approved for a new loan with us. The higher your credit score, the lower the interest rate we offer will generally be. Other factors can affect your interest rate too like your living expenses and your total income.

How can you find out your credit score?

Your credit score is a number that is calculated based on what is in your credit report and how you have performed with credit products in the past. You can obtain your credit file from an online credit file provider for free. Generally, a higher score means lenders will consider you less risky, whereas a lower score may affect your ability to get a loan.

What credit reporting agencies do MoneyMe use?

The credit reporting agencies we use are Equifax and Illion.

Can you get a MoneyMe personal loan on a bridging visa?

We will not review your application while you’re on a bridging visa, but you can reapply with us once your visa status is confirmed.

How can you change your account information if you’re switching banks?

Once you've logged in to your MoneyMe account, go to 'Account details' and click on Update your details 'here'. A window will appear where you can enter your new bank account details. Press send to submit.

Alternatively, you may contact us directly on 1300 860 441 or send an email to hello@moneyme.com.au.

How can you contact MoneyMe?

Whilst we’re completely online, we’re always here to help. You can reach us via phone on 1300 860 441, by LiveChat during operating hours or by emailing hello@moneyme.com.au at any time

What are MoneyMe’s operating hours?

We’re available from 8am to 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 9pm on weekends. We’re also open on most public holidays.

Quick cash access for rental bonds

Recent trends in Australian housing have seen more and more people opt for renting rather than owning a home. Being a renter offers you more flexibility over where you choose to live without being tied down to a large mortgage hanging over your head. What you lose in the security of long-term living, you gain in the freedom to choose where and how you want to live. If you’re a renter looking for quick and painless bond assistance, we’ve got you covered.

While you might be saving time and money on large and long-term debts, the upfront costs of securing your next rental can seem overwhelming when the time to move comes. You have rent on the new place and the old one while you’re moving out; the upfront bond payment; removalists costs; professional costs like cleaners and gardeners.

That’s why MoneyMe has developed a range of quick loans designed to help you get the cash you need to help with paying upfront bills like bond assistance and rent assistance. You can shave moving costs down by moving yourself and taking care of your own cleaning, but you can’t do anything about your bond and rent. That’s where we can help.

What is bond assistance?

When you choose to rent your home, you are asked for a bond payment upfront. Depending on which state you are renting in, this bond payment may be an equivalent of 4 to 8 weeks’ worth of rent and is paid separately to the rental fees itself to secure your new house or apartment. It is held in trust by the state bond board for the term of your rental period and is used as security against any damage caused to the property while you’re renting.

After your rental term, your real estate or landlord (if you are renting privately) will complete a final inspection of the house you have been living in and let you know if there are any costs for cleaning and repairs that will need to be deducted from your initial bond payment. Once both you and your landlord have agreed on those costs – if any – the bond is returned to you in a lump sum payment. This usually happens within a couple of weeks of vacating your old property but it means that until your bond is repaid to you, you’re out of pocket a few thousand dollars.

This is where our bond assistance comes in handy. It acts as a quick loan designed to help you cover those upfront relocation costs. MoneyMe offers a range of unsecured personal loans of up to $50,000 which you can access quickly and painlessly with our entirely online application process with fast approval times. We specialise in offering easy loans that you can use to cover costs like upfront bond repayments, rent assistance and even for furnishing your new home! 

Apply for bond assistance to make moving easier

The terms for our loans are flexible and we don’t charge you early payout fees which means that you can apply for any of our same day loans today, get the funds you need for a smooth and comfortable move, and then chop down your total interest payable by making additional payments. For example, if you apply for our personal loans Australia to help with bond assistance and other moving costs like professional cleaners, removalists and some new furniture for the new place, then once the bond is returned to you on your old accommodation, you can put it straight on to your new loan balance. You reduce your total loan amount quickly, save on interest and still comfortably manage the remaining monthly repayments along with the rest of your living expenses.

Know how much you can borrow

Use our online personal loan calculator to help you answer the question: “How much can I borrow?”

personal loan repayment calculator will offer you indicative monthly repayments based on the ideal cash loan amount that you’re looking to borrow. You can use this calculator to help you plan a rough budget, factoring in your new rental expenses, and help you choose which between our personal loans or our line of credit is the better option and gives better personal loan interest rates.

Spend now, pay later with Freestyle

While our unsecured loans are offered for up to $50,000 and come at competitive interest rates, you may find that a revolving line of credit is the better option for where your money is at right now.

MoneyMe’s innovative pay-later solution, the Freestyle Virtual Credit Account, offers you an approved limit of between $1,000 and $10,000. It’s like your buy now pay later and credit card rolled into one, but lets you do so much more.

You can use it for everyday purchases over thousands of retailers whether you are shopping in-store or online. And with simple taps on your phone, you can use it to transfer money straight to your account or pay anyone fast! It’s like having access to a never-ending stream of small loans to help you pay for emergency costs, score great deals on flights and other sales, pay your bills, and move to a new house. It’s easy cash exactly when you need it.

You can draw down on your pre-approval amount and repay it slowly over time, or clear your entire credit balance immediately. Once you have repaid the credit that you have borrowed, that credit amount becomes available to borrow again immediately. You can use your credit funds like a mini loan or cash advance to tide you over between pay cycles, or for bond assistance on your new property, repaying it completely once your old bond comes back to you. 

Fast cash for travels and ride upgrades

If you are planning a getaway, you may apply for our travel loans to help you pay for everything straight away.

Bond Assistance

Bond assistance, also called housing bond loan, is a type of personal loan with a specific purpose: to provide you with quick cash to pay for the deposit or bond on a rental property. MoneyMe understands the importance of an easy and quick application process, especially in today’s rental market, where properties in great locations are easily snatched by tenants. As a result, we eliminate time-consuming paperwork and phone interviews so you can access financing the same day as you send your loan request to us.

How to get bond assistance?

First things first – make sure that you choose a lender that offers competitive rates, favourable repayment terms, and excellent customer support. As an innovative financial service provider that caters to tech-savvy borrowers, MoneyMe meets these requirements. 

Once you’ve chosen a reputable lender, the next step is to read their credit products and the requirements during the application process.

Am I eligible for bond assistance?

To qualify for MoneyMe’s bond and rental assistance or any type of personal loan, you need to be an Australian resident, currently employed, and at least 18 years of age. We also take into account your credit report, especially your payment history, to make sure that your requested amount is something you can comfortably repay throughout the duration of the loan. 

How to apply for bond assistance?

To apply for Moneyme’s bond assistance or any fast cash loan, go to our site and click ‘Personal Loans’ and the ‘Apply Now’ button. Next, fill out the application form with your personal and bank information, income, monthly expenses, employment status, company name, duration of your loan, reasons for borrowing, and requested amount. 

Our easy and quick bond loan application generally takes around three minutes or five minutes at most.

Can you still get bond assistance for rentals?

Thanks to some innovative financial service providers and online loan companies like MoneyMe, it’s now easy to get bond assistance for rentals. It was hard to get quick loans because traditional lenders and banks had a lengthy loan application process. 

Do you get bond back with bond assist?

The short answer is yes. Landlords must return their tenants’ security deposit, minus any rent owed and other reasonable costs, within 14 days after vacating the rental property. That being said, you can use this money to pay off your bond loan early, helping you save money since doing so reduces your interest costs. 

Unlike many lenders, MoneyMe allows borrowers to pay off their personal loans or cash advance sooner without any early repayment fees. 

How can I get assistance with a rental bond?

Aside from government bond assistance, you can also get this financing option from online lenders like MoneyMe. If you need money to cover security deposits for property rentals, simply visit our website and fill out our online application form with your personal and bank information. Within the same day, you’ll get a decision. Once approved, we immediately transfer the funds to your bank account.

How long does bond assistance take?

At MoneyMe, the application process, decision, and money transfer are generally completed within the same day, provided that you allow us to conduct online verification of your bank statement and your bank account is quick to process the funds. 

But if you send your application outside of business hours, it will be processed the next business day. 

We understand that the property market in Australia moves fast, especially in major cities, making it difficult to secure a high-quality apartment or townhouse if you don’t have enough savings to cover the security deposits. Nowadays, almost all landlords ask for bond or security money to protect themselves in the event of non-payment of rent, damages and other losses.

What requirements are needed for bond assistance?

Aside from your personal details and employment status, we also need to see your most recent bank statements to assess your creditworthiness. However, you don’t have to send us a printed record because we use a safe and secure portal provided by illion Open Data Solutions that allows us to assess your bank statements. 

We can only access ‘read-only’ snapshots of your bank statements; it’s not possible for anyone at MoneyMe to know your passwords and other sensitive information. 

Throughout the duration of your loan, we may continuously obtain bank statements for the purpose of ongoing account management. 

Who can help me with bond assistant?

Not all lenders that provide bond assistance are created equal. At MoneyMe, we’re able to offer interest rates lower than our competitors because we do everything online – no expensive office rent and overhead costs related to managing a physical site. Instead, we rely on a powerful and secure platform and a team of skilled and dedicated professionals. 

In addition, our housing bond comes with a simple repayment scheme in which your debit card is set up with your MoneyMe dashboard, preventing accidentally missed monthly payments and its ensuing extra fees. 

To learn more about our bond assistance and other lines of credit and loan products, or if you need to use a personal loan calculator, visit MoneyMe and check out which of our financing options will suit you best.
