Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) may be able borrow to invest in Residential Investment Property and Commercial Property.
If you have a SMSF , it can purchase the property under an instalment arrangement, but it must meet certain criteria.
The SMSF makes a partial payment on the property and borrows funds to pay the balance plus the other acquisition costs, using the property as security under a limited recourse loan.
The property is held in a bare trust for the SMSF which is entitled to its income. Your SMSF makes the loan repayments, paying off the loan over the agreed period. After the loan is repaid, the legal ownership of the property can be transferred to the SMSF.
It is important you obtain professional investment , tax and legal advice before entering into this type of arrangement.
There are a number of complex rules and regulations surrounding Superannuation and planning for retirement.
