2 min. readlast update: 12.28.2023

If you're a new Australian who is awaiting Permanent Residency (PR) or Citizenship, you may be wondering if you're eligible for our rent-to-buy homes product. 

We understand that being forced to rent can be frustrating, especially when you have the means to own a home. That's why we've designed our program to help you achieve that dream, even if you're not yet a permanent resident in Australia. 

At PublicSquare, we're committed to making home ownership accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of their legal status. To be eligible for our rent-to-buy homes product, you don't have to be a permanent resident in Australia. 

However, it's important to note that not having an Australian income history may affect your eligibility. If don't have a consistent income history in Australia, we may require additional documentation or proof of income from your home country to assess your eligibility for our program. 

We want to ensure that you're able to make your rent payments on time and that you're a good fit for the program. Once you become a permanent resident or citizen, you'll be able to purchase the home you're renting through our program.

 This means that you'll have the opportunity to build up a deposit while living in your home and waiting for your PR or citizenship status to be approved. So you can settle into your own home many years sooner.
