2.     Is there a restriction on the type of properties I can invest in via SMSF?

No. Whether you invest or borrow funds from your SMSF, there is no restriction on the type of property you can buy. You can buy a commercial property, a residential property, an industrial property or even a farmhouse if the following conditions are met:

3.     I want to borrow funds from my SMSF to buy a property. What should I do?

Australians with an SMSF can certainly borrow money from inside the fund to buy a residential or commercial property.

To ensure that the amount borrowed from the fund is used appropriately, it is recommended that you seek the advice and assistance of a financial advisor or your accountant.
