Owning property through your SMSF can provide certainty of tenure to your practice while bringing valuable advantages to your retirement nest egg.

There are compelling reasons for doctors to consider owning their practice property. It brings certainty of tenure to the practice and provides the flexibility to fit out the property in the way that best suits the needs of the doctor's practice and patients.

Even better, many doctors find that over time it is actually cheaper to own a property than to lease.

Buying an owner-occupied commercial property can also bring valuable tax savings, especially when the property is held in a lightly taxed self-managed super fund. Then, when doctors choose to retire, they can continue to hold the property, and enjoy the passive income generated by the property’s rent returns.

How do SMSF property loans work?

Lending within the superannuation environment works slightly differently to traditional property loans.

As an SMSF is designed to support doctors in retirement, loans to SMSF are required by law to be ‘non-recourse’, which means the lender does not have recourse to any of the assets held by the SMSF beyond the property being funded. This is very reassuring for medical professionals as the other investments within your SMSF are quarantined from the lender.
