The incentive is offered on the condition that the dwellings are rented to eligible low to moderate income earners at a minimum of 20% below market rates.

Why do I have to provide my income information and what will you do with it?

NRAS regulations require property to assess your gross income to determine your eligibility to live in one of their NRAS rooms. To be eligible you must have earned less than $58,905 in the 12 months before you take up residency in a studio, or less in the event of 6-bedroom shared apartments where the gross income limit per room is $28,597. You will also be asked to complete a NRAS Tenant Consent Form, which authorises them to provide your personal information to the Australian Government to assist them in determining who is accessing their services. Your income information will not be disclosed to people outside of property other than in accordance with any legal obligation or internally to persons who have no need of access to the information, unless you tell them in writing, that you have given consent for us to do so.

What is a statutory declaration?

A statutory declaration is a written statement of facts, declared to be true in the presence of an authorised witness. For NRAS purposes, they will ask you sign a statutory declaration declaring your gross income to be true and correct upon your check-in. If you intentionally make a false statement in a statutory declaration you can be charged with a criminal offence which carries the possibility of up to four years imprisonment. Only individuals who are licensed or registered to practice in Australia in a listed occupation may act as an authorised witness.

I am a school leaver and haven't previously been employed, what income information do I provide?

The income assessment section is based on your income and not your parents. If you have not earned any income, this includes income from family trusts or dividends, then you can enter $0.00 in your application. Please bear in mind that payments from a parent or immediate family member, any trust distributions and any tuition money that enters your bank account (that you do not provide proof of payment from your tertiary educational institution for in your supporting documents) in the 12 months preceding your contract start date are considered income.

What happens if I apply for a NRAS room and I am deemed not eligible?

If your gross income is found to be above the NRAS income limit during the initial screening and you are not deemed eligible, they will contact you to discuss alternative options available in a non-NRAS studio apartment or multi-share apartment. Please ensure you review the NRAS criteria and if you are unsure of what constitutes income, you are welcome to contact them. If your gross income is found to be above the NRAS income limit at the final screening (upon arrival at property), your holding deposit will not be refunded, however your bond and additional weeks’ rent in advance will be.

What happens if I stay on and sign a lease for a further period?

Property is required to screen your gross income according to the same process again before renewing your lease. Iglu may also be required to assess your income on the anniversaries of your first commencement date “Anniversary Date” and at the beginning of any subsequent leases.

What happens if, upon arrival at property or upon reassessment in subsequent years, my income is found to exceed the NRAS eligibility requirements?

If this happens, you will be required to: relocate to an alternative room in the student accommodation facility which is not a NRAS room; or relocate to an alternative facility which is not a NRAS room; or search for alternative accommodation.

What supporting documentation will I be required to provide?

Prior to property being able to confirm your application for one of their NRAS rooms, you will need to complete an Income Notification Form and provide supporting documentation substantiating your income. Examples of supporting documentation that could be provided (please note these are examples only and are not exhaustive): Letter from your employer(s) or guardian/family; Notices of assessment for annual tax returns; Statements from Centrelink; Government grant letters; Most recent pay slips from each employer covering the term of income disclosed; Proof of payment of tuition costs paid to your tertiary education provider (note: if you do not provide these, the income you receive into your bank account to pay for your tuition costs will be counted towards your total income.)
