02 June 2022 How you can provide Defence families with a place to call home

Right across Australia, DHA manages around 18,000 properties that Defence families call home.

Investing with DHA isn’t just about making rental returns, although that would certainly be important to you as an investor. It’s also about providing quality accommodation to the members of Australia’s Defence Force and their families, who not only serve their country but make considerable contributions to the community in times of pandemics, flood, fire and other emergencies.

It’s why investing in DHA property is such a great option. Every investor helps Defence families have a place to live while they are serving in the forces.

Defence members are often called on to move multiple times during their career and can be mobilised at short notice to help our communities in times of need. As an investor, you’re providing a place for those people to live and call home. You’re providing a solid base, a sanctuary to return to at the end of a long day or shift.

It also means that when Defence members need to move, they have a great place to move into for their new deployment. They have a wonderful place to settle down and make new memories and connections with the local community.

Defence families have the same needs as the rest of us and want to live close to amenities like schools and shops and have access to transport options. As such, DHA properties are well located within communities around Australia, in capital cities and in regional areas where the Defence Force has a presence. We don’t sell properties on Defence bases, but rather in locations close to Defence bases that support Defence members and their families to become a part of their local community.

Investing in DHA properties also offers the peace of mind of guaranteed* rent, and a comprehensive property care package that takes some of the hassle out of being a landlord. For more information on how to become an investor in DHA properties, visit our website.

*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 the lessor breaches the lease terms, the rent may cease or abate, and the 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.
