How to invest with DHA

Update: We've made some changes to our property investment program. Due to requirements in our property portfolio, we have paused all property sales and ballots until further notice. However, we still have strong demand for housing to accommodate Defence members and their families in a range of locations.

Did you know that you can lease to DHA? Whether you already own an investment property, or you’re considering buying an established property or building a new one, we can offer an investment solution to suit your needs.

Both options provide the same benefits: a long-term lease, guaranteed* rental income and DHA’s Property Care services – reducing the stress of being a landlord.


Are you a builder or developer?

Do you have new or off-the-plan residential properties for sale? DHA may be able to commit to a long-term lease so you can sell the property to an investor with a lease offer in place.

DHA are interested in leasing new and off-the-plan properties — contact us today on 133 342 or email


We rent properties directly from investors to house Defence members and their families. We are always on the lookout for quality properties in key locations.

If you own an investment property and would like to lease it to DHA, speak to one of our leasing specialists today.

*Rent may be subject to abatement under certain circumstances such as loss of enjoyment or amenity, or breach of lease terms. Rent is paid where the property is habitable. Should a property become uninhabitable during the term of the lease, or lessor breaches the lease terms, the rent may cease or abate and the lease may be terminated by DHA. Guaranteed rent is subject to the terms of the lease. DHA does not take into account an investor’s objectives or financial needs. Investors should always seek appropriate independent advice before making any investment decisions with DHA.
