Ways to invest with DHA

Are you looking for a secure property investment with a long-term lease? Whether you’re a first-time investor or a seasoned professional searching for property, there's a DHA investment to suit your needs. And with about 18,000 properties under our management nationwide, you can rely on our expertise. Read on to discover the ways you can bolster your property investment portfolio with DHA.

1. Buy a DHA investment property

When you buy a DHA investment property, we provide you with a level of certainty that is unmatched by other property investments. That’s because DHA provides you guaranteed* rental income over a long lease term (usually nine or 12 years)—even if your property isn’t occupied. This way, you can budget easily for the future.

Once your purchase is complete, you can relax knowing you have made a reliable investment choice and that your tenants are reputable members of the Australian Defence Forces and their families. DHA will even look after ongoing repairs and tenancy management for you in return for a single service fee.

Purchasing a DHA property is simple. You can start your property search by reviewing the list of properties for sale on our website. Once you have made your selection, a DHA Sales Consultant will enter you into a fortnightly ballot. If you are successful in the ballot, the DHA property will be placed on hold for seven days, enabling you to begin the settlement process.

Consider buying a DHA investment property if: you're an investor seeking guaranteed* rental income over a long-term lease.

2. Rent your investment property to DHA

If you're seeking a long-term tenant for your existing investment property, why not consider renting it to DHA?

Our standard lease terms for third-party properties are three or six years—and when you lease to us, rent is payable from the commencement of the lease. Rent is accrued daily and is paid monthly in advance, directly into your bank account. Rent is even paid if the property isn't occupied. All of our investment properties undergo a regular rent review so your income will keep in line with the market.

Consider renting your investment property to DHA if: you have an existing investment property and are looking for long-term tenants and guaranteed* rent.

*Rent may be subject to abatement under certain circumstances such as loss of enjoyment or amenity, or breach of lease terms. Rent is paid where the property is habitable. Should a property become uninhabitable during the term of the lease, or lessor breaches the lease terms, the rent may cease or abate and lease may be terminated by DHA. Guaranteed rent is subject to the terms of the lease. DHA does not take into account an investor’s objectives or financial needs. Investors should always seek appropriate independent advice before making any investment decisions with DHA.
