Liberty residential SMSF loan FAQs

  • A residential SMSF loan is a home loan used by a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) to buy investment property. The returns on the investment are funnelled back into the SMSF to increase your retirement savings.

  • The amount you can borrow with a residential SMSF loan will depend on your financial situation. You might also need to maintain a minimum amount within your SMSF after the property purchase. This amount will vary depending on your individual circumstances.

  • If you have an SMSF and are considering taking out a mortgage to buy an investment property, you should first seek advice from your financial adviser or accountant. If you decide to go ahead, a mortgage broker can help you find the right SMSF loan for your needs and explore what other lending options may be available to you. And, if you’re new to SMSF lending, a broker can help to simplify the process and answer any questions along the way. To find out more, speak to a Liberty Adviser today.

  • A target market determination describes who a product may be suitable for, based on likely needs, objectives, and financial situation. It also outlines who can distribute our products, how they can do this, and examples of situations when we may need to review our products and the target market.

  • Some borrowers may have taken out SMSF loans when interest rates were higher, or their financial circumstances were different. In these situations, it is worth looking into refinancing your SMSF loan to see if there are better options available to suit your needs.

    Refinancing an SMSF loan is a different process than your typical refinance because of how unique their structure is. While it’s possible to refinance an existing SMSF loan, there are few lenders who provide SMSF loans for this purpose. As a specialist lender, Liberty has the flexibility and capacity to offer loans that traditional banks cannot accommodate – including SMSF loan refinances.
