Pay market price for DPN’s property with no extra fees for DPN's services
Solid relationships with Australia’s leading land suppliers, builders and developers means DPN have access to wholesale prices on investment property. This ensures you pay market price or less whilst benefiting from our services at no additional cost to you.
Locked-in prices for newly built homes with all inclusions ready for rental.
DPN only works with builders that provide fixed-price contracts. Houses come with all standard inclusions for rental, with no additional out-of-pocket costs required by investors.
Unlike suppliers that leave you footing the bill to finish your property for rental, the builders we work with will always complete the entire project as planned. In addition to building, they will take care of landscaping and internal finishings such as lights and painting, so your property is rental ready.
Fixed Build Time
Build times are fixed ranging from 16 to 30 weeks (as specified in your contract) or you’re paid compensation weekly.
DPN negotiates with approved builders to ensure you have guaranteed build times, providing you with rent or liquidation damages paid by the builder if they do not finish by the stated time.
*Guarantee starts from laying of the slab and is subject to the purchaser paying on time. Details and terms are disclosed in each builder’s contract.

If a property is unrented for longer than 6 weeks after handover, DPN will guarantee you 92% of the base rental estimate for 2 years.
Rental Yield guaratee
If a property is rented for less than expected, DPN will guarantee you 92% of the base rental estimate for 2 years.

- Handover means the date on which physical possession of the property is handed over to you
- Base Period/s means the period of 6 weeks commencing from Handover, or if the property becomes vacant during the Guaranteed Period, a period of 6 weeks from each date on which a tenant vacates the property
- Base Rental means the lower rental amount expected to be paid by a tenant, as stated on the signed written appraisal provided to you by the Property Manager at the time of your purchase of the property as varied to market from time to time on the advice of the Nominated Manager. In the event of dispute the current market rate shall be determined by an independent expert in the applicable State: NCAT( NSW Civil and Administration Tribunal) for NSW or QCAT (QLD Civil and Administration Tribunal) for QLD
- Guaranteed Amount means the amount which is 92% of the Base Rental amount
- Guaranteed Yield Amount means the shortfall between the Guaranteed Amount and the actual amount of rent paid by the tenant
- Guaranteed Period means the period of 2 years commencing from Handover
- Nominated Manager means DPN or, if DPN does not provide property management services in the relevant area, an agent or property manager recommended and approved by DPN to manage the property
Tenant Vacancy Guarantee
Subject to these terms and conditions, if during the Guaranteed Period, your property remains unrented for longer than 6 weeks after handover, DPN will pay you the Guaranteed Amount, fortnightly in arrears calculated from the day after the expiry of any Base Period until your property is tenanted or the end of the Guaranteed Period, whichever comes first.
If the Base Rental is $600 per week and your property is not tenanted for 12 weeks after handover, DPN will pay you $552 per week (which is 92% of $600), in respect of each week from the 7th week after handover until the property is tenanted. DPN will pay $1,104 per fortnight for each of the 3 fortnights the property is vacant.
If the property becomes vacant at any time during the Guaranteed Period a new base period commences, and no Tenant Vacancy guarantee applies for the first 6 weeks after the tenant vacates. DPN will then pay you $1,104 per fortnight commencing from the 7th week after the tenant vacates until a new tenant is located or the end of the Guaranteed Period.
Rental Yield Guarantee
Subject to these terms and conditions, if during the Guaranteed Period, the rental income for your property is less than the Guaranteed Amount, DPN will pay you the Guaranteed Yield Amount. The amount payable is calculated quarterly in arrears from the day the lease commences, until the tenant vacates the property, the rental income achieved reaches the Guaranteed Amount, or the end of the Guaranteed Period, whichever comes first. The Rental Yield Guaranteeapplies to each lease term within the Guaranteed Period.
If the Base Rental is $600 per week but the property is rented for $500 on a 12 month lease, then the Guaranteed Yield Amount is $52 per week (being 92% of $600 less $500). DPN will pay a total of $2,704 for the 12 month period, with payments made quarterly in arrears.
Conditions which apply to both the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee and the Rental Yield Guarantee
DPN is only prepared to provide the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee and the Rental Yield Guarantee on condition that you:
appoint the Nominated Manager for the Guaranteed Period; and
that you comply with these terms and conditions.
Only one of the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee or the Rental Yield Guarantee is paid in relation to any given period of time.
If you terminate the services of the Nominated Manager within the Guaranteed Period, then you must within 14 days of the date on which you terminate the services of the Nominated Manager, repay to DPN, in full
all amounts paid to you by DPN under the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee; and
all amounts paid to you by DPN under the Rental Yield Guarantee.
Two lot strata titled properties and single title dual key properties are treated as a single property, and the Base Rental will be the combined amount for both properties.
In listing the property for lease, you must:
obtain and keep current a current landlord’s insurance policy at your cost with a reputable insurer that covers loss of rent for any reason (being no fault of yours), for the Guaranteed Yield Amount for the duration of the Guaranteed Period;
not refuse any reasonable tenant application which has been vetted and approved by the Nominated Manager (for example, you may not reject a tenant who has children or pets); and
appoint a power of attorney or otherwise authorise another person (i.e. the Nominated Manager, or a relative, friend or associate) to make decisions in relation to the letting of the property if you are on holidays or otherwise unavailable;
not interfere with the defined processes of the Nominated Manager, which are aimed at securing a good tenant as quickly as possible for the best possible rent, which may include advertising the property before it’s completed or available for rent, making decisions in relation to the most appropriate method of advertising the property, offering (at your expense) a maximum 2 week free rent period or other value-add, or reducing the initial advertised price to current market rates as advised by the Nominated Manager; and
in listing the property for lease, you must ensure that the property is advertised at a rental amount consistent with then current market rates as determined by the Nominated Manager taking into account comparable properties then currently advertised for rental, which may be less than the Base Rental.
DPN will be released from its obligations under these Terms in the event of a wide spread illness, national emergency, war, prohibitive government regulation or where any other cause beyond the reasonable control of DPN, for a period of 7 days or more, in anyway affects a tenants ability to pay rent.
If you do not comply with these terms and conditions, DPN is entitled to terminate the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee and / or the Rental Yield Guarantee by written notice to you. If DPN terminates either the Tenant Vacancy Guarantee and / or the Rental Yield Guarantee, you are not required to repay any amounts paid to you by DPN.
