MyBond

MyBond is financial service that helps tenants pay their rental bond. Since March 2021, MyBond has helped over 500 customers across New South Wales, Victoria, and soon Queensland (as of 1st of November) with further expansion across other states and territories in the coming year. There is no other product similar of its kind in the market. A simple and straightforward fee of “One Week Only”; MyBond can pay a tenants’ entire bond for a fee of just one week’s rent. In an expensive city like Sydney, it’s a natural barrier for tenants from all walks of life to raise another four weeks rent alongside the cost of moving whilst still waiting for their previous rental bond to be refunded. Thus, MyBond’s unique service is becoming a popular alternative and solution to paying rental bonds.
