Commercial Property

Owners and or tenants of office, retail and industrial property can also participate in Homes for Homes by electing to donate 0.1% of sale price at settlement and / or 0.1% of rent on commercial leases

Homes for Homes can accommodate freehold and leasehold participants. The H4H transaction mechanism:

  • Uses an existing legal mechanism (‘permissive caveat’) to signify a property’s participation in Homes for Homes. For freehold participants, Homes for Homes lodges a ‘permissive caveat’ to record participant on property title. For leasehold participants, Homes for Homes provides a template clause to be inserted into a standard lease agreement
  • Does not prevent the owner from dealing with their property in the future
  • Can be voluntarily removed by current or subsequent participant(s) at any time
  • Permits other dealings on title (incl. subdivisions and financial dealings such as mortgages)
  • Utilises an ‘opt-out’ mechanism, so commitment transfers indefinitely with property
