Our market rent review service gives you the confidence that your returns are protected. If your DHA Lease Agreement has a provision for an annual market rent review, your property’s market rent will be assessed as at 31 December each year. Your valuation is undertaken by an independent registered market valuer and is completed in accordance with Australian Property Institute guidelines.
Following the rent review, we will notify you when the market valuer’s assessment has been completed, and a copy of the rental certificate will be available to view within Online Services.
If you disagree with the market valuer's assessment, you may be eligible to complete a secondary market rent valuation process. This will be dependent on whether your DHA Lease Agreement allows for a secondary market rent valuation. Please refer to your lease to determine whether this provision is available to you.
If your lease does not include an annual market rent review, the rental figure will be paid in accordance with the entitlement stated in the lease.

What is a rental floor?
In some instances, we offer a rental floor at lease commencement. This means that while your rent may fluctuate with market conditions, regardless of the outcome of your annual rent review, it will never fall below the commencing rate. The rental floor does not apply to all lease agreement editions however, so we encourage you to refer to your DHA Lease Agreement.
