Want to make your SMSF work harder for you by investing in property?

Supporting SMSF clients with home loan 

Using your self-managed-superannuation-fund (SMSF) for Borrowing or gearing your superannuation into the property must be done under very strict borrowing conditions called a 'limited recourse borrowing arrangement'.  A limited recourse borrowing arrangement can only be used to purchase a single asset either residential or commercial property. Before committing to a geared property investment you should assess whether the investment is consistent with the investment strategy and risk profile of the fund. However, there are state and bank policies that are specially designed for self-managed super fund (SMSF) property investors to get the most out of their circumstances.  You might miss out on the available opportunities if your plan didn't include taking these options into considerations. You also might have a hard time securing the loan amount you want or the SMSF loan terms suitable for you. Call us or send us a message today to find out more about how we can arrange the right SMSF investment property loan fast and easy for you.

To qualify for the SMSF property loan the SMSF trustees or the applicants first have to understand the limitations:

1. The property they intend to buy meets the 'Sole Purpose Test' of solely providing retirement benefits to the fund members
2. The property is NOT purchased from a seller who is related to any fund member
3. No fund member or their relatives can live in the property purchased using the SMSF
4. The property purchased using SMSF cannot be rented by any fund member or their relatives  

5. SMSF can be used to purchase the commercial property of the fund member and the rent can be paid directly to the SMSF

6. The SMSF loan amount is currently limited to only up to 70% of the value of the property 

Benefits of SMSF loan to invest in property

Benefits of SMSF loan to invest in property

1. Investment capacity: Self-managed super funds (SMSF) are able to purchase property worth beyond its own available funds by utilising the benefits of gearing.


2. Asset protection:  SMSF loans are classified as “limited recourse” which means, should a loan default, other SMSF assets are protected since the lender may not have recourse to the other assets in the SMSF.

3. Capital growth: The SMSF enjoys all capital growth and income regardless of whether the property has been fully paid for. SMSFs can utilise the income coming from the property to help pay for the loan.

4. Tax savings: Minimising your SMSF’s tax liability may be possible as interest expenses can be declared as tax deductions by the SMSF.

5. Investment options: SMSFs are able to manage a property in any way and at any time in the same manner as investors can manage their property investments. For example, SMSFs can lease, repair, renovate, or sell. However, it is still dependent on the terms of the SMSF loan and mortgage.

Disadvantages of SMSF loan to invest in property

Disadvantages of SMSF loan to invest in property

1. Higher associated costs - SMSF property loans and preparation tend to be more costly than other property loans which must be factored into the investment decision.

2. Cash flow - loan repayments must be made from the SMSF which means the fund must always have sufficient liquidity or cash flow to meet the loan repayments.

3. Hard to cancel or exit - If the SMSF property loan documentation and contract is not set up correctly undoing the arrangement may not be allowed and the fund member or the trustee may be required to sell the property, potentially causing substantial losses to the SMSF.

4. Possible tax losses - Any tax losses from the property cannot be offset against your taxable income outside the fund.

5. No alterations to the property - Until the SMSF property loan is paid off alterations to a property cannot be made if they change the character of the property.

Interest only Mortgage

Savvy Property Investor

You repay only the interest on the borrowed amount usually for the first one to five years of the loan, although some lenders offer longer terms. Your monthly repayments are lower because you’re not paying off the principal. At the end of the interest-only period, you begin to pay off both interest and principal. These loans are especially popular with investors who plan to pay off the principal when the property is sold, having achieved capital growth.

Low Doc Mortgage loans

Loan for Self Employed

Low Doc home loans are designed for self-employed people who don’t have all the financial documents providing proof of income usually required to secure a home loan. The low-doc mortgage loan can be both variable and fixed rate home loan.
