The keys to Salim Mehajer’s infamous mega-mansion have finally landed in the hands of creditors as the disgraced former property developer remains behind bars.

The luxurious home in Lidcombe, in western Sydney, which could sell for more than $3.5 million, has been successfully repossessed by National Australia Bank.

Mehajer in December had an application for an injunction to stop NAB selling his two Lidcombe homes rejected in the Federal Court.

A judge found the request to be an “abuse of process”, ultimately giving permission for the bank to repossess both homes, which Mehajer had defaulted on loan repayments for.

The former deputy mayor of Auburn City Council was declared bankrupt in 2018, and found to be in arrears to creditors to the tune of $24 million.

Four million of that was a NAB loan for two Lidcombe properties, a court heard, which he defaulted on.

NAB sought to repossess and sell his two houses – the mansion, and another nearby on Ann Street.

Mehajer now has no choice but to await in anticipation from Cooma Correctional Centre for his six-bedroom, five-bathroom home with a $1 million staircase to hit the market.

The home, purchased by Mehajer in 2007 for $565,000, has been the centre of nationwide interest in recent years, with it famously featuring in a video for US rap artist Bow Wow.

The 845sq m mansion was in 2017 advertised for rent at $2950 a week.
