Common mistakes when buying an investment property in an SMSF–Tip 6

More and more investors, are using their Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) to buy an investment property.


Some of the most common mistakes people are making and how you can avoid them.


Purchasing from a member

While the SMSF can purchase a residential property from a non-related third party, it cannot purchase a residential property off a member or related person of the member.

An SMSF can, however, purchase listed shares or business real property (commercial and industrial)off a member.

There will be CGT and stamp duty consequences to the sale, but in relation to stamp duty most states allow for a minimal stamp duty if the property is in the individual's name, and they are also the SMSF member.
