Helping Hand Headlease

In a Helping Hand Headlease arrangement, we lease a private rental property through a real estate agent and sublease it to you.

At the end of the lease term, if the lease has been successful, we will work with you and the real estate agent to transfer the lease.

The lease is undertaken as a general tenancy agreement and is governed by the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008.

Who can apply for a Helping Hand Headlease?

A Helping Hand Headlease is best suited to customers who can afford and sustain a private rental tenancy but cannot access the private rental market for various reasons, such as having a limited rental history.
