Looking to Invest?

Here's your guide

You can help the next generation buy their first home and invest in your future at the same time. All without becoming a landlord.

The Details

The mortgage is in the buyer’s name

You won’t need to guarantee the loan and debt won’t be secured against your name.

Your interest in the property is clear

You’ll have a Co-Ownership agreement confirming your interests, and you will also have a second mortgage registered in your favour against the property.

Minimum 5 year partnership

After that, you can sell the property, the buyer can buy you out or continue the Co-Ownership indefinitely.

You’re happy with the property

Levridge works to find a buyer who wants a similar type of property.

All buyers are screened

Buyers need to have mortgage pre-approval to ensure they are stable, reliable, have clean credit and can service the mortgage, rates, insurance, and any other expenses.

Full support from Levridge

Investing in property can be a scary business. We’re here to ensure you feel confident with your investment.

The full Process

1. Matching with a buyer

  • Apply online. This is where you tell us what type of property you’d like to invest in.
  • We’ll meet so we can talk through the process in a bit more depth, and we can answer any questions you might have.
  • You sign an “intent to proceed” and pay a $1000 bond, which Levridge holds as a sign of commitment. This will be returned to you if and when the home is purchased.
  • We match you with buyers who are stable, reliable, have clean credit checks and are able to service the mortgage, rates, insurance, and any applicable body corporate fees. They must also be approved for lending.
  • We send you the profile of the potential buyer, which will include information relating to their job, their living situation, the type of property and location they are looking for, as well as a summary of their overall position.
  • You can choose whether to meet your buyer before you choose to invest.
  • Great! You have a match.
  • The buyer is given the go-ahead to start their property search.

2. Buying the home

  • The buyer shares a home they’re interested in with us at Levridge.
  • We check the property meets with your expectations.
  • We help the buyer with the Sales and Purchase Agreement. This is conditional upon finance, due diligence, solicitors approval, LIM, building report, weather tightness report and registered valuation. The costs will be shared 50/50 with you and your buyer.
  • You and the buyer are both happy with the paperwork.
  • You enter into a Co-Ownership Agreement with the buyer. You will then pay the deposit (10% of the property’s value).
  • You agree on a settlement date (usually four weeks later).
  • At settlement, you pay the rest of the deposit (you’ve now paid a total of 20% of the property value).
  • Your buyer moves into the property and pays the mortgage, rates, insurance, general maintenance (that is not capital investment), and any body corporate fees.
  • Congratulations. You’ve now secured an investment in your future
