I already own property. Can I add this to my SMSF?

This will depend on whether the property is residential or commercial. You can buy a commercial property that you already own and even borrow against it, as long as you meet the borrowing criteria i.e. a maximum Loan to Valuation Ratio of 72% for residential property and 63% for Commercial Property.
