I have a Self Managed Super Fund. Can I can invest in property?

Yes, SMSFs can now borrow to purchase real estate using a structure established for this purpose, as long as certain conditions are met. There are various loan products offered which enable these purchases to be made.

  • The property you buy must be held in a ‘warrant trust’, ‘bare trust’, ‘special trust’ or ‘purchasing trust’.
