Managed Investments, Property Trust & Super Funds
NDISP works with fund and investment managers from small closely held trusts and Super funds to international consortiums seeking to take advantage of the stability of an investment product where the rental income is funded by the Australian Government through the National Disability Investment Scheme.
Acquiring a Portfolio of Existing SDA Properties
NDISP’s custom management software allows us to provide a list of properties which can be purchased as a portfolio based on:
- capitalisation rate
- design category
- property type
- and more
All of our existing owners provide us with a cap rate that they have agreed to accept for the sale of their property. This allows us to be to present funds and investment managers with a complete portfolio of properties without the need to negotiate with dozens of individual owners.
The combined legal and property development experience of our team allows us to make this complex transaction as simple as possible.
With more than 200 properties due for completion in the 2020 calendar year and more than 1,000 in 2021, NDISP can provide a portfolio that suits your needs.
Design & Vacancy Risk
This is an investment like no other in that you can’t use price to compensate for poor design or location.
We have seen large funds develop properties with old school providers and while these properties might suit these providers and have minimal vacancy now due to the lack of supply, they just don’t suit participant needs and so they will have very high vacancy risk down the track.
If the properties don’t have at least the items below then it may well be that the design suits returns on paper, or the efficiency of the provider, but not the participant.
- large ensuite to every bedroom
- large bedrooms
- access control and monitoring
- task lighting
- passive or active alerts or monitoring
- 3m Ceilings
- no shower screens
- no ceiling fans
- solid core doors
- 1200mm wide doors
- 1500mm wide hallways
- automatic doors
High Physical Support
- 1200mm wide doors
- 1500mm wide hallways
- automatic doors, blinds, lights, air conditioning installed
- touchless entry and exit
- ceiling hoists installed
SIL/Support Worker & Vacancy Risk
Unfortunately we regularly come across well known and long established supported independent living providers who just don’t get the client centred focus of the NDIS.
The NDIS is all about choice and control so it’s vital that old school organisations leave the institutional mentality behind.
NDISP will not work with organisations that have set meal times, menus, rostered activity days etc.
Someone’s Home – Not a Workplace
These properties are someone’s home, not a workplace or accommodation. That means people get to choose what they eat, where they go, when they go there as it suits them, not as it suits the SIL provider.
The NDIS is a Commonwealth Government backed Scheme that includes a special rental payment to encourage investment in SDA Property called a Special Disability Allowance (SDA).
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a Federal Act developed in 2013 to allow people with a disability to exercise choice and control about matters that affect them- such as their housing. SDA housing is housing built to a standard not readily available in the general housing supply.
The Australian Government was one of the first countries in the world to be a signatory of the ‘UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities’. The Federal Government via the NDIS SDA program have committed $700,000,000.00 annually for the next 20 years to investors who provide specially constructed housing. The SDA housing program aims to increase the supply of suitable accessible housing through generous rental subsidy payments.
Currently, there are over 28,000 Australians with a disability that the NDIS has identified as living in inappropriate accommodation. The NDIS SDA funding is to encourage property investors and institutions to build more disabled centric homes. Sadly there are also 6,000+ young Australian’s who are currently living in aged care facilities due to a lack of housing options and this number is increasing by 50 young Australians each week.
This is where you come in. By purchasing an NDISP Platinum Plus home you help provide a suitable purpose built home for up to 4 disabled Australians. In return, the generous NDIS SDA scheme will pay you returns that exceed 10.5% net depending on the location and exact property type.
We took the time to ask …
NDISP has been working with disability providers, participants and the general community to find out exactly what type of SDA Property they want in order to achieve the quality of life we all desire.
We go beyond what is required …
Livable Housing Australia (LHA) has developed minimum standards of accessible design that have been adopted by the NDIS and the housing industry. The highest build standard is Platinum … NDISP believes this is a minimum standard so all of homes contain features that go beyond what it requires in this standard. We are proud to call this our Platinum Plus standard. What others offer as an option, we include as standard.
We are not a “churn and burn” company …
NDISP is not a project marketing company pretending to care. After you purchase an NDISP property, our role has only just begun. NDISP is a registered NDIS Housing Provider and we will continue to manage your investment property. So it is in our interests to ensure that the build quality is high, maintenance issues are low and the design is fantastic, to ensure that good tenants will always chose our homes over the competition.
