A specialised area in itself, expats and non-residents have their own needs and outcomes to consider, along with ensuring you are compliant with the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). Working with Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) approved credit advisors, we can help you ensure your loan structure is the right one for you, and fits in with you and your family’s overall financial goals and structure.
We are your expert for global access to local property.
At Pula we know the Australian market and can enable you to access the best of Australia’s property market.
As a non- Australian citizen or non- permanent resident, we can make your purchase a smooth process. However, you first need to apply for permission to buy Australian property from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). Details can be found on the Australian Treasury website. This process can take as little as three weeks. As a non-resident, you can only buy property in your own name, not a company name.
We will be here to help you every step of the way. Fill out one of our forms online and we will be in touch or you can contact us on 1300 557 666.
