How does a SMSF Loan work?

An SMSF loan is a home loan used by an SMSF to purchase an investment property. The returns on the investment, which can either be your capital gains or rental payments, are funnelled back into the superannuation fund for your retirement. currently only offers the ability to refinance SMSF loans, with their SMSF product not available for the purchase of new investment properties. Refinance SMSF loans are eligible for the refinance of a standard residential investment house, unit or townhouse however are ineligible for the refinance of vacant land or multiple dwellings on one title.

SMSF loans are what’s called a ‘limited recourse borrowing arrangement’ or LRBA for short. This means if the borrower defaults on the loan, the lender can only go after the asset the mortgage is secured against. They can’t go after other assets held in the SMSF, and is why interest rates are typically higher on SMSF loans than regular home loans. This is the main difference between an SMSF loan and a regular home loan.
