Getting the right SMSF loan

We have access to the most extensive range of SMSF lending products and services
 
The loan secured against the property asset to be purchased needs to be structured so that there is no recourse to the other assets of the SMSF.  
 
This structure requires a trustee independent of the SMSF trustee to act on behalf of the SMSF to execute the purchase and mortgage documentation.  The SMSF remains the beneficial owner.
 
Finance providers have responded to the new legislation and brought out loans that are appropriate to the needs of SMSF borrowers.  However, the marketplace is not yet at 'full maturity' with new Lenders still entering and existing Lenders regularly reviewing their Products and processes - some exiting the market (or removing certain products) - and in some cases, exiting and then re-entering.
 
SMSF Loans will facilitate your funding approval and co-ordinate your transaction from initial enquiry through to settlement.
 
We will assist you to identify the loan product and structure to suit the requirements of your gearing level, contributions / cash flow, investment strategy and property type (residential / commercial / rural).
