Sophisticated Investors

A mature couple own several properties and want to take advantage of their current earnings and repayment capacity.

They would like to purchase additional rental properties in preparation for their retirement (after which time their borrowing capacity will be significantly reduced).

A further challenge for them is that 2 of their existing properties are under performing and the total debt across all assets is cross-collateralised which will increase the level of difficulty, and reduce the flexibility, in managing the eventual sale of individual properties.

Our proposal

To allow the efficient sale of the under performing assets and to release all available equity in the existing assets (up to 80%) which will in turn enable further asset purchases, we proposed to:

  1. create stand alone mortgages using a range of lenders
  2. increase debt levels to an 80% LVR (loan to valuation rate*) and in turn establish a line of credit to be used as both a deposit on additional property purchases as well as to provide a financial buffer to ensure that repayment schedules can be maintained without any reduction in disposable income
  3. rebalance the portfolio by selling the two under performing assets and commence the search for a new property in a more robust area (capital growth and rent revenue).

*anything over an LVR of 80% will generally attract compulsory mortgage insurance
